Robinson funeral fills arena
“Coach Robinson is measured by how many players he graduated, not by how many minutes they played,” Jackson said. “When (Chicago Bears coach) Lovey Smith and (Indianapolis Colts coach) Tony Dungee stepped on the Super Bowl field, they were an extension of Coach Robinson.”
Jackson said Robinson was an example of what could be accomplished when a person was given a chance.
“When the playing field is even and the rules are public, Coach Robinson showed us we could make it,” Jackson said. “He made the world come to Grambling — you owe a debt to this man.”
