Eddie Gay Robinson

February 13, 1919 

Coach Robinson, you will be missed.  This man was remarkable.  During the time when blacks athletes couldn’t play at white school Eddie Jordan sent over 200 players to the NFL.  During his career he won over 408 games.  He was a true trail blazer and he will be missed.
