Ken Robinson, A Proud Father

The big day for Norcross (Ga.) - Greater Atlanta Christian linebacker Christian Robinson came on Wednesday when he signed his letter of intent with the University of Georgia. The four-star athlete was excited and full of joy, but his Father Ken Robinson may have been more excited than Christian.

Mr. Robinson, the new GAC Head Football Coach has seen his son grow up, become a man, and do so many great things and he was very proud Father.

Many fans, students, family members, GAC faculty members, friends and loved one were in the Family Center Wednesday morning by 7:30am ET and all were just glowing for Christian Robinson and his accomplishments.

Christian's Father Ken played college football at South Carolina and he is currently the defensive coordinator at GAC. They have a special bond and a great relationship and the emotions started to come out as Robinson started to turn the page and open a new chapter in his life.

Mr. Robinson, like Christian had to fight the tears a few times Wednesday as he saw his son sign with the Georgia Bulldogs and move on the play major college football for one of the top coaches and people (Mark Richt) in that profession.

He stood up to give a small speech thanking everyone for their support of his son during the ceremony and you can hear it in his tone and see it in his face, he loves his son, he is proud of his son, and he knows he is something special.

After fighting off the tears and touching many with his words, Christian moved on to finish up signing his papers and faxing them over to Athens.
