Days until legendary Michigan quarterback Denard Xavier "Shoelace" Robinson cheers on his alma mater as they crush the Rainbow Warriors of Hawai'i in the season opener at the Big House. With his electric athleticism, cheerful demeanor, and embrace of the student-athlete role, Robinson was perhaps the brightest light in an otherwise difficult era for the University of Michigan Wolverines when he attended from 2009-2013. He is a true "Michigan Man."
As first team All American in 2010 he broke the Michigan school record for total offense with 4,272 yards. He also lead the Wolverines to a victory in the Sugar Bowl during Brady Hoke's inaugural season, helped to engineer an epic comeback against Notre Dame in UTL1, and graduated with with his degree in 2013. He was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 5th round of the NFL draft, where he still plays as a running back.
