Kinnelon’s senior captain Sean Robbins has busted out this season as one of the top quarterbacks in Morris and Sussex counties. Through six games he’s thrown for over 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns. During that same span, he also added another 500 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground.
In this past weekend’s win against Hopatcong, Robbins willed his way to 165 yards rushing on 26 attempts and scored 5 touchdowns. He also added 155 yards passing and threw 11 completions on 23 attempts. This performance not only boosted Robbins’ Colts to a 4-2 record, but it also earned him Morris Sussex Football’s Week 6 Player of the Week.
Morris Sussex Football caught up with Robbins to talk about the make-up of this Kinnelon team, what famous person resembles his coach and who his role model is.
Morris Sussex Football: What does this win do for this Kinnelon team?
Sean Robbins: This win was huge for our team. We played a team in Hopatcong that we respect very much. The win was obviously key for our team’s playoff hopes, and our team’s overall confidence.
MSF: How important are the next two games before the postseason eight game cutoff against Pequannock and North Warren?
SR: The next two games are critical, we are playing two teams we respect very much. These games could be the difference between being the last seed in the playoffs or competing for a two or three seed.
MSF: What would surprise people about your team?
SR: The way we act around each other would surprise most people. We like to keep it very loose, but know when we have to work hard. Most football teams are tight knit groups, but I think ours’ takes it to the next level. We are truly a family.
MSF: Who on your team is the strongest?
SR: We have two guys that are both incredibly strong. My fellow captain Troy Andretta and Cristian Graupe. Both guys have been doing a tremendous job leading our offensive and defensive lines.
MSF: Who do you feel is the unsung hero of your team?
SR: I think the team has three unsung heros; Eric Clement, Liam Nelson, and Andrew Park. Eric “Mookie” Clement has been doing a great job running the ball and keeping opposing teams honest. While Liam and Andrew have played outstanding at the inside linebacker positions.
MSF: Who keeps things loose in tense situations?
SR: The whole team is a loose bunch of guys, but the center Hunter “Snatcher” “Roofus” Ellington, tight end Marco Conte and safety Connor Villante are among the leaders in that category.
MSF: What was the funniest thing that happened with your team this season?
SR: During the Hopatcong game we had a botched snap on a PAT, our kicker Evan Argiriou picked up the ball threw a 2 pt conversion and proceeded to get drilled.
MSF: What is your pre-game meal?
SR: My favorite Pregame meal is straight peanut butter on whole wheat bread. It does not mess with my stomach and gives some good protein.
MSF: If you could play one song before a game, what would it be?
SR: Lose Yourself by Eminem. The song has so much energy and is so intense it really gets me going.
MSF: What current or past NFL player do you think you most resemble on the field?
SR: I’m not positive but Coach White always brings up Fran Tarkenton. Scrambling is a huge part of my game and was key in his also.
MSF: Who is your biggest role model?
SR: My dad is my biggest role model. He has taught me so much about hard work and perseverance. Which are key skills in football as well as everyday life.
MSF: What famous person most resembles Coach White?
SR: Coach White resembles Rex Ryan because Coach is a huge Jets fan. However Coach White is a lot more understanding and fun loving.
MSF: Who would win a forty yard race between your two top receivers Sean Walsh and Joe Presti?
SR: Joe Presti has been a top receiver and leader for us this year. However I think this one would be in the bag for Walshie.
MSF: Who would win if you lined up with those two?
SR: It would be pretty close between Sean and I. Connor Villante could beat all of us.
MSF: What does success look like for this team?
SR: Right now a success would be beating our respected opponent Pequannock. We have had tight games for the past two years. We look forward to preparing hard in practice to get ready for them.
MSF: Thanks Sean and best of luck the rest of the way!
