It's amazing how things have changed.
The rising sophomore has been able to buy into Salas' philosophy and became a big of the Hurricanes defense last year.
Robinson, who plays linebacker, contributed to a defense that set school records in 11 of the 13 statistical categories last season.
Besides finishing with 38 tackles including 24 of the solo kind last season, Salas has noticed a change in Robinson off the field.
"Antonio’s relationship with me has turned 180 degrees," Salas said of the 2008 Scotland graduate. "He was not exactly ‘buying in’ to the system when he first came, but has since realized what we wants, altered who he associates with, and has been a great leader for our defense."
"Now, he is truly a pleasure to coach. I would consider him a true success story from his beginnings as a college football player and I expect great things from him in the future," added Salas.
After he completes his eligibility with the Hurricanes, Robinson hopes to transfer to a four-year institution and continue his playing career.
