Singletary appreciates his chance just to play
Starting quarterback Chris Robison said he’ll be heading back home for a few days this weekend.
“Just see some family, see some friends. Get away from football a little bit,” said Robison, the redshirt freshman from Mesquite, Texas. “I like to disconnect a little bit, just so I can get ready for the next part of the season.
“I love football and I love doing it every day, but sometimes I just feel like you just need a break. ”
Singletary, the workhorse that he is, still likes to use extra time for improvements on his game but also finds benefits in allowing the body to recuperate.
“I think you need a bye week, kind of regroup,” he said. “I think it can’t come at no better time than midway through the season, kind of get time to get your mind back right.”
Jefferson happy to get game action: Junior defensive tackle Noah Jefferson, who transferred in from Arizona Western College between the second and third week of the season and originally was at Southern Cal, got to see the field for the first time with FAU against the Monarchs on Saturday.
Following the game, he detailed what brought him to FAU in talking to reporters for the first time since joining the team.
“Probably coach [Lane] Kiffin, honestly,” said Jefferson, a 6-foot-5, 330-pounder. “I wanted to be at a place where I was going to be taken care of but also just being pushed, on the field and off the field — somebody who’s going to make me a better man.”
Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary is grateful for his health this season amid injuries cutting short some of his peers’ careers.
