I had the privilege to Coach this young man when he was just starting to tap into his potential. James became a force to be reckoned with on the track. His prep 100 and 200 meter times were not only some of the fastest in the state, but in the country. Currently, he uses his speed playing wide receiver for the Ohio Buckeyes and was a member of the 2014 national championship team. – Coach Robinson


 

“For me to take the next step in my Track and Field career from a good sprinter to a great one I needed a higher level of coaching. When Coach Robinson stepped in my sophomore season he revealed a brand new and more complex method of training that I needed. He helped make corrections in my techniques and added more endurance runs, which helped me improve my sprinting times and made me a better runner overall. As much emphasis as Coach Robinson put on coming to practice and giving my best effort, he was even more concerned of the habits I had off the track that would keep me healthy and full of energy, such as sleep and a well-balanced diet. It was a higher level of coaching and discipline that I had not been used to. The longer runs in practice and the altering of my technique were very difficult for me and it was a struggle every day. However, I will always remember that Coach Robinson was always there supporting me every day through the good days and bad days. He saw something greater in me that I did not see at the time. A few years later I look back at the success I did have in track and realize that it may not have been possible without him.” – James Clark
