BRHS’ Robinson honoredPublished 10:01am Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Pam Robinson, head volleyball coach and athletic director for Benjamin Russell High School, has received one of the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s highest honors.
Robinson received the AHSAA’s award for state athletic director of the year.
The honor was a part of the AHSAA’s All-Star Sports Week’s sportmanship banquet.
“To tell you the truth, there are a lot of great people who were deserving,” Robinson said of the honor. “I didn’t think of myself being in the conversation. So for me to win this award is really humbling, knowing how many other great people that were up for it.”
Entering her third year as athletic director for Benjamin Russell High School, Robinson said the honor was a team effort.
She credited the Wildcat coaches and student-athletes for their part in her day-to-day tasks.
“The coaches are so great to work with,” Robinson said. “What amazes me about them is that they’re great people first and good coaches second. The coaches and players are very hard working.” The best part of my job is watching the athletes compete. Whether it’s baseball, softball or volleyball, it’s always great to watch them play.”
Additionally, Robinson said the support of school administration has been extremely helpful.
“Our adminstration has done a great job of support our athletics programs along with all our other programs,” she said. “In my job, you can’t get anything done without good administration. Mr. Reyes, Mrs. Kelly and Mr. Goggans have been great, and they’ve been a huge part of this.”
