Michigan Wolverines Football Training Camp: Denard Robinson Emerging As Leader

The Michigan Wolverines opened their training camp on Monday and it appears a new version of Denard Robinson showed up.

This Robinson, a senior, is more vocal on the field, embracing a leadership role, via Dave Hogg of Fox Sports Detroit:

"Denard's really picked it up," [Roy] Roundtree said after Michigan's first fall practice. "He's a lot more vocal than he has been in the past. You can actually hear him now."

"I think we've seen Denard step up as a leader since the spring," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday. "His maturity level is high, and even though we are just one day in, he did a really nice job today of getting the offense where it needed to be, and calling plays in the huddle. There's more confidence this year."

It's a continuation of what was first seen at Big Ten Media Days last week, when Robinson delivered a heartfelt speech about his family and his journey to U-M.
