Remember Andrew Robison? In August 2012, the diminutive middle schooler earned national headlines when he became the first sixth grader to throw for a varsity high school touchdown in national history, achieving the feat on a 63-yard completion for Franklin (Tn.) Christian Academy.
A year later, Robison is earning more national attention, though this time the touchdowns are much more plentiful.
As first reported by MaxPreps, Robison is spending his seventh grade season as the starting quarterback for the Franklin Christian junior varsity football team. In one recent game, he completely tore apart an unnamed opposing defense for 8 touchdowns through the air. You can see highlights of those eight scoring passes in the video above.
It's apparent that Robison has grown a bit, as sixth graders are apt to do. It's also apparent that his accuracy has only improved, and he's even developed some "escapability" and speed in the open field; according to MaxPreps he's rushed for 117 yards and 3 TDs on the ground.
As a defensive back, the 13-year-old has already picked off a pass as well.
Still, it's as a signal caller where Robison will truly stand out in the future, and his second season of high school ball while still in middle school has only enhanced the hype around the passer. Though the season is still young, Robison has already passed for 694 yards and 15 touchdowns, completing 49 of 71 passes. And he's yet to be intercepted.
Just think of what he can do when he's actually the same age as all the players he's outshining already as a middle schooler. The potential is frightening.
