Robinson Commits to Play Division One Football
October 2, 2017
Ever since Scott Robinson Jr. started playing on a football team, at aged 7, his dream has always been to go to a Division One college on a scholarship.
Last Saturday night, Robinson’s dream came true when he decided to commit to play football at South Carolina State University as a wide receiver.
“It’s pretty exciting knowing I won’t have to pay for college and it’s always been my dream to play D1 football. I’m just thanking God for allowing me to get this far,” states Robinson.

Robinson puts in countless hours of tough practices to become a better person, on and off the field. After dedicating his time to improve over a course of playing Varsity football for four years, Robinson was named as a captain for his senior year.

Saturday night was a special night for Robinson to commit because he had taken a visit earlier that day. He had already thought about committing before the South Carolina State football game, that night, but he believed that seeing the atmosphere and hearing the loud crowd is what sealed the deal for him.
Robinson is just as excited to play football, at a higher level, as South Carolina State is. He says that once the game ended Saturday night, he verbally committed and the coaches were excited and jokingly encouraged him to suit up for them in next week’s game.
Robinson believes that this is the school for him because it is a place he can go and compete for a starting position and have the possibility to be a starter for three to four years.
Hard work and perseverance is what got Robinson to where he is now. Although he will be remembered as a Stallion, South Pointe will be there for him in his transition into a Bulldog.
“Scott is a great football player. He’s dynamic on both sides of the ball, but when you take all of that away, he’s a great person. That’s why he deserved this,” says Jamari Currence, friend and teammate of Robinson since third grade.
