Robinson, a senior, was the starting point guard on the Decatur basketball team, but he translates those skills to the lacrosse field.
“He really does bring a point guard mentality and approach to lacrosse,” Decatur boys’ lacrosse coach Wes Hatfield said. “He sees angles and feeds other guys sometimes don’t see because of his basketball background.”
Hatfield said Robinson’s athleticism is rare on the lacrosse field.
“You don’t normally see a lot of athletes like him in high school lacrosse in Georgia,” Hatfield said.
Hatfield said Robinson’s athleticism and skills were obvious early on.
“When you see someone like him step out onto the field, you know,” Hatfield said. “He tends to be one of the fastest guys on the field and he is certainly one of the bigger, stronger guys on the field.
“We realized early on that if we got his stick skills up to where they needed to be, he could be a force to be reckoned with.”
Robinson said he likes the physical nature of the sport.
“I like to be able to hit my opponent,” Robinson said. “And I just like being out here with all my friends.”
Hatfield said Robinson has been consistent this season. Robinson has scored six goals and four assists in seven games since coming over from the basketball team.
