A breakout junior season at Louisa County (Va.) High School has drawn the attention of colleges to the skills of Noah Robinson. A wide receiver who runs the 40 in 4.6 and stands at 6’3 and weighs 180 pounds, Robinson said the offers are starting to come.
“At first it was kind of slow, but then after my junior year when I got all the accolades it started picking up. Right now I have offers from ODU, Howard, Williams & Mary, the University of Richmond, Columbia, and Dartmouth,” Robinson said.
Those accolades include Virginia Group 4A All State, All Region, All District and school records which in 2018 included 50-plus catches in the season and more than 500 yards receiving.
Looking forward to 2019 Robinson said, “I want to win the state championship. That’s the biggest thing. My goal would be I want to have 100 yards receiving a game, 1,000 yards this season. I had 50 tackles last season, so 75 tackles this season, and six interceptions.”
Robinson plays cornerback on defense.
He hasn’t made any visits but has a load of camps on his schedule.
“I have been invited to the Blue-Grey All American Combine, the Rivals Three Stripe, the Appalachia Prep Combine, Nike Opening Region, USA National Team, and hopefully UnderArmor All-American Regional,” Robinson said.
During the off-season he stays in shape by working with his coaches.
“I continue to work with my strength and conditioning coach, Coach Blanding, and then my speed coach, Coach Younger, and then my wide receiver coach, Coach Wilkins. He played in the NFL and he helps me out, and helped me over the summer break,” Robinson said.
In the classroom Robinson supports a 3.8 GPA and looks to go into the business field in college.
