Remembering Coach Eddie Robinson

You probably saw it in the news yesterday, legendary Grambling football coach Eddie Robinson passed away at the age of 88. Robinson is famous for being a great football coach and great leader of young men, particularly the predominantly poor, southern black men who played for them.
The Sports Frog posted a story by Bob Pentland about meeting coach Robinson several years back. You may remember Bob as the author of the fantastic Eleven series here at Dave Sez. Go read it and you’ll understand a bit better what a great man Robinson was.
