Higley High School defensive end Ty Robinson is a special breed of football player, who is relentless in different realities.
In this one, life is treating him very well, he's highly coveted with scholarship offers from Alabama, Arizona State and Arizona; there are many rolling in. Ty is keeping his options quietly close to the vest.
"I have a majority of them cut down. To be honest, I like to keep it to myself for those top five reasons. and it's a once in a lifetime process. I like to take it for what it is and I'm just loving it right now," Robinson says.
Putting fear into quarterbacks, the senior is an aggressive, moving mountain, standing 6 foot 5 inches and 260 pounds.
"His willingness to work, he is very competitive, I think that along with his size and quickness that he has, separates him from a lot of other people," said Higley coach Eddie Zubey.
Robinson's talent resonates nationally, he has been invited to play in the Adidas Army All-American Bowl.
"I'm just blessed. I've got god to thank for it. I've got my Momma to thank for it, and my coaches and my teammates," said Robinson.
A punishing force on the field, he's also a bad man in the video game world. He loves to play and his twitter name is 'Lord Shaxx' from Destiny 2.
"I've got some buddies in there that think I sound like him when I do his voice. It’s just a giggle, so I thought for fun, I would put it on a Twitter. It kind of stuck and now everyone knows me as Lord Shaxx," said Robinson.
When Robinson is not crushing the competition, he's chilling at home on his family's ranch.
They own all kinds of animals, like a horse, a donkey, even a camel, "I get to see those guys every day it’s a good thing they come up and ask you about your house and they ask where you live. I just throw out I have a camel living in my backyard, nothing big," said Robinson.
Even though he loves animals, Robinson won't be a veterinarian like his mom, but he is aiming to be a pediatrician.
"I do well with kids, my big body, I kind of seem like a big jungle gym to them. So, I get along with a lot of the younger kids and that got me to being a pediatrician," said Robinson.
So whether it’s the virtual world or in this reality, Lord Shaxx;, a.k.a Ty Robinson, has the impressive magical touch.
