In praise of coach’s values and character

Published: Friday, March 7, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

This was an amazing story about coaches that we don’t hear about that often [“Mr. Robinson’s new neighborhood,” Feb. 25]. Don Robinson is not only a good coach, but he is also a great person to have in a school system.

The values he stresses are lifelong character building, and that makes everyone better who comes into contact with him, his team, and his former teams. I do not know Mr. Robinson personally, but I endorse his style.

Thanks for being in “the neighborhood.”  And thank you, SVM Sports Reporter Brian Weidman, for a great column.

Note to readers: Don Robinson has coached the Prophetstown High School girls basketball team for 37 years. On Saturday, the Prophets took second place in the IHSA Class 2A state tournament.
