Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is known for eluding obstacles en route to the end zone when he's on the football field. On Tuesday, not even traffic backups and snowy roads could keep the U-M icon from his destination, Michigan Rehabilitation Specialists in Northville.
Robinson was the guest of honor Tuesday at the physical therapy center's grand opening, cutting the ribbon on the business that opened its doors at 17783 Haggerty Road in Northville in November 2012. Robinson then stuck around to pose for photos and sign autographs for fans who also braved treacherous driving conditions to meet the popular quarterback.
The collegiate superstar, nicknamed "Shoelace" by U-M fans and the media for his tendency to not tie his shoes, is the NCAA's all-time leading rusher among quarterbacks.
Michigan Rehabilitation Specialists' (MRS) new facility is located in the Northville Village Shopping Center on the corner of Six Mile and Haggerty, where it shares space with Running Fit.
The Northville location is the 11th MRS facility to open since it was founded in 1999.
Kristin Kepsel, DPT, CIMT and Michelle Krings, MS, PT, ATC are part owners and serve as co-directors of the facility.
