Dus Robinson laughed at the question.
Dus, you’re the best athlete in the family, aren’t you?
“No. No chance. She’s probably the third, “her father said.
“Yes, sir,” Robinson replied.
Checking in at 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, Robinson is a tough-edged mountain who looks a lot like former five-star Oz Howard – handsome, physically elite, someone you can’t trust yet a teenager.
The debate over whether he is the best athlete in his own family, though, is a good one. His father, Dominic, played football in Florida State. His mother, Mary Beth, swam in Florida.
Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle Prospect is not only the No. 1 tight end in the country and at the top of the Five Star rankings, but he is also an elite baseball player who is likely to be drafted among the majors.
“The goal is to pick a (baseball) draft and hopefully we can make another decision if that can happen,” Robinson said.
Mary Beth Robinson says: “This is a million dollar question. Much will depend on how it goes this summer, but it could be a different conversation down the road. “
There will be a time and place for that discussion.
For his football recruitment, it’s swimming. USC, Georgia, Texas and Alabama are basically his top four. He will visit USC in a few weeks, Robinson will be in Alabama for the Texas A&M showdown, and then he will be working on season tours in Athens and Austin as well.
“From now on, I’d probably say it’s the USC, Georgia, Texas, and ‘Bama to whom I’ll probably take officers and probably one more,'” Robinson said. “I am just not sure what this could be. There are a couple different ones. These four I’m locked in for the officers.
“I like to touchdown and score everything but at the same time I realize that if I am lucky enough to get to the next level I am going to use them then I have to do different things so they want to use me in school. I try my best to make it happen. I will. “
Robinson knows how to make it happen.
Approved at Florida State Gear Robinson House. Dominic Robinson confirmed that. There is a helmet on the living room television stand. Three Robinson boys have taken to the seminars on the Gators.
This is the only way Dominic Robinson can find peace.
Dominic Robinson said, “The way I can handle it and I can’t handle it any other way.” “My middle son had gator socks and he couldn’t wear them for a long time and then he found them and he played well when he was wearing them so he cycled with them and it bothered me a lot. I finally caught them in the laundry one day and hid them.
“It simply came to our notice then. We would have stayed out of the house if we had gotter stuff up around the house. We have some seminal staff, we have a seminal helmet sitting on the TV stand in the living room. I get annoyed when our boys wear orange and blue, only colors even if it is non-gator related. It may work out that way. It’s good that he’s not afraid of the seminal stuff the way I treat the gator stuff. “
For someone so devoted to garnet and gold, marital bliss has tarnished school loyalty. Mary Beth Robinson became best friends with the Florida State Cheerleader when the two worked together in the Orange Bowl, and then one of Dominic Robinson’s best friends was the seminal dancer. They were two sisters and were introduced to Dominic and Mary Beth. The rest is history.
It was that happiness and those choices – the joy that both parents had in their decision – that allowed Robinson’s parents to accept and accept the schools they were most interested in, rather than pushing their son to Gainesville or Tallahassee.
Dominic Robinson said, “People think or they take it because I’m a coach or because of all these things I’m going to take the reins and it’s going to be my contract and from the beginning people take it that they have to hire me,” Dominic Robinson said. .
“From the beginning, I’ve been saying all this (coach), ‘Listen, this is not my contract. I was hired 20 years ago and I don’t want to be hired, my wife doesn’t want to be hired, we had time, we did our job, that’s her contract. ‘ He is running the process. We try to help her with the information she needs to make a conscious decision but I always tell people and I tell her we want her to feel the way she does about our school.
“If he had to go to school on the moon to find out how I feel about Florida State, he could go to Moon University. I want him to be around the house and all these things, I want him to wear garnet and gold and play doc (at Campbell Stadium) and beat the swamp gators, I like those things, but I just want it because I want him to feel that way too. Let it be as I have felt. If it had to be at another university, I would support it. “
Robinson doesn’t have to play on the moon. But for someone in his power, both in baseball and football, the sky is the limit.
