Sarkisian suggested we add on more person to that list.

Off the field, Robinson served the community in many ways. He donated hundreds of backpacks to stundent's at Harmony School of Excellence, and helped the homeless in Austin by teaming up with the Den Foundation who donated $5 for every yard Robinson ran to the help the Community First Village.
Robinson left no question about who he credits for his success. God is always the first words out of his mouth. The entire team was committed to prayer before, during, and after practices and games.
