Corey Robinson, wide receiver at San Antonio Christian High School, still has one more game to play this season, The U.S. Army All-American Bowl (USAAB). When asked about his recent selection to play in the 2013 high school all-star Bowl Game he said, “This is a top honor, a privilege to be selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game.” Corey is the only player to be selected from San Antonio, but not the only great accomplishments in his career.
Some football players wait to make their college or university choice official on National Signing Day on February 2, but Robinson had made his commitment back in March to attend The University of Notre Dame.
When asked about how Robinson made his decision, “I prayed when making my choice when selecting my school. I looked at the pros and cons. Notre Dame always a top 20 school every year. It was a no brainer. The cold weather and the uncomfortable bleachers were the only cons,” Robinson said with a smile.
Robinson is also a man of many talents, a renaissance man of sorts. He is self-taught on numerous instruments and has a love for arts. Notre Dame offers many degrees, but there was one that stood out to him. “I am currently going for a Business Major, but I also want to study Film and Chinese,” he states. Robinson’s favorite movie is The Artist, his favorite actor is Leonardo DiCaprio because of his work in the blockbuster hit Inception, and one day he hopes to go into film production, quite the array of interests for star student-athlete and son of NBA Hall of Famer and legend, David Robinson.
Corey plans to represent his school and San Antonio when he joins the other 89 All-Americans at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He will have two local coaches to guide him at the game, Steele High School’s Mike Jinks and Antonian Prep High School’s Van Fuschak were chosen as coaches. Jinks was selected as the Head Coach for the entire West squad.
All the local talent can be seen at Noon, Saturday, January 5, 2013 at the Alamodome. The game is a sneak peek at the future of college and professional football.
