ST. JOHN | They call him a "beast" and a "monster" on the defensive side, but Gelen Robinson is anything but off the field.

In Friday night's 26-7 thumping of Duneland Conference rival Crown Point, Robinson and his "D" buddies showed little mercy.

Tyler Szczecina's 25-yard interception return to cap the night's scoring was the sixth defensive touchdown this early season for the Times No. 3 Indians (4-0, 2-0).

And as always, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Robinson was there to make a difference at linebacker and defensive end. He also played a few snaps at fullback.

"I'm pretty humble. I'm not used to being interviewed," said the Lake Central sophomore. "I love all the sports I play (football, wrestling, track). I just try to do my best and trust my teammates to do their best."

In four games, L.C. has now outscored opponents 180-43.

"We're just trying to get the ball back so our offense can take over and do its thing," Robinson said.

Quarterback David Yancey rushed for 176 yards and two TDs, then connected with Dylan Morang for a 52-yard score to make it 20-0.

"We have to play a real clean game on both sides of the ball to beat a good team and we didn't do that tonight," C.P. coach Chip Pettit said. "That turnover was the icing on the cake. We need to look in the mirror right now."

Lake Central coach Brett St. Germain likes what he's seeing but knows there's room to improve.

"This program hasn't won in a while so there's a lot of speculation," he said. "Our kids are no different than kids at other schools. They just need to learn how to win."

How about those 43 points, though?

"I don't know the words to describe what the defense is doing," St. Germain said. "But at the end of the day, it's the players and we've got some pretty good ones."

No. 5 C.P. (2-2, 0-2) could do no better than Jake Lindeman's 13-yard run midway through the second quarter.
