There may not be a more fitting nickname in high school football for the next four years than Brayden “Quick6ix” Robinson.
A 2026 athlete who has accomplished a ton of accolades in AAU track and field and football already, Robinson playing high school football as a freshman for Red Oak High School.
Robinson is a 10-time AAU champion, winning previously in the 100 meter, 200 meter, 4×1 and 4×4 relays throughout the years.
Despite all his previous successes in middle school, Robinson is focused on one thing as he prepares for the varsity level: winning.
“My goals this season is to just be an all around player no matter what I’m playing, either if I’m on special teams or on offense just wanna do my job to help the team get the win,” Robinson said.
I first saw Robinson in action this past spring playing for Team Grind at the DR7 Kick Off in Texas tournament.
Playing against a team from Louisiana in the championship, Robinson, who was then an eighth grader, had several touchdown catches and all-around big plays.
He’s hoping that experience of playing against older competition in 7v7 can translate to Friday nights.
“I feel like playing against older kids helped me get used to playing on the varsity level,” Robinson said.
Along with that, Robinson has also been working against some talented players on his Red Oak team.
“Over the summer I’ve been practicing a lot against our 4-star defensive back Warren Roberson, and I have been in the lab with my trainer D-Rob,” Robinson said.
Robinson has picked up an offer from Arizona State, Ole Miss, Sam Houston State, SMU, Texas Tech, and Incarnate Word.
The 5-foot-9, 157 pound receiver with lightning fast speed (4.47 laser 40 and a 10.65 100m) will only get better as he continues to gain experience in the high school football ranks.
“Quick6ix” will quickly become a name to know very soon.
