Corey Robinson making name for himself

By Matt Fortuna


A strong junior season has put San Antonio Christian receiver Corey Robinson on the map of elite colleges.

Notre Dame was the first to offer Robinson, a month ago, following the 6-foot-4, roughly 200-pounder's 42-catch, 660-yard, 10-touchdown campaign.

You may have heard of his father, David, who is in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame after a lengthy career with the San Antonio Spurs.
"I don't know if I'm the type of player my dad was, where I can go somewhere and bring them to national prominence like he did with Navy basketball," Corey said. "I want to go somewhere where I love the coaches and the atmosphere and where I feel comfortable. I'll be spending eight months there. I want to have a shot at going to the highest level of football.

"Sure, there's pressure, but the pressure's nice because it makes me work harder. I'm David Robinson's kid, and people don't really know me as Corey right now. That gives me reason to work. I want to be the best, and if I'm going to be the best, I don't want to be in the shadow."
