their competitive nature can sometimes lead to tension.
“When he’s getting the ball more than I am, then I’ll be kind of mad,” said Adrian Robinson. “Then when I’m getting the ball more and getting more yards than him, he’ll be kind of mad on the sidelines.”
The tension, however, does sometimes turn into motivation.
“It’s pretty cool being able to play with him, because every time he makes a big play, he pushes me to do something that’s almost as good as what he did or even better,” said Andrae Robinson. “It’s like he knows when I’m at my best, and I know when he’s at his best so we can always push each other along.”
Edgar gets to witness firsthand how they interact on the field with one another.
“They complement each other well,” he said. “If one scores a touchdown, the other is like, ‘Well it’s because I blocked.’ If one doesn’t get a touchdown, they blame the other one for not block- ing. I think they push each other, and at the end of the day, they are twins and they have that relationship that is inseparable. It’s a very competitive nature between the two of them.”
While they have a lot in common, they do differ in their styles of play. While Adrian Robinson is a more powerful, downhill runner, Andrae Robinson tends to be quicker in his movements and cuts. While Adrian enjoys the defensive side of the ball, Andrae would rather just run the ball.
The twins’ success doesn’t just stop on the field. According to Edgar, they’re also superstars in the classroom, getting good grades and taking advanced classes. Their grades coupled with their talent could end up taking them a very long way.
“With their manners and the way they carry themselves, combined with their athletic ability, I think the sky is the limit,” Edgar said. “They are on the radar of some big time college programs already, and if they can continue to just develop physically, mentally and socially, I think they have a very bright future ahead of them.”
