Neiko Robinson Reports To Penn State Football Camp

August 6, 2013

Northview High School graduate Neiko Robinson was at Penn State Monday as the Nittany Lions opened their first day of camp.

The cornerback was due to be on campus in June with the rest of his class, but was not. PennLive.com reported Robinson was not enrolled in classes at Penn State due to “confusion” with his Northview High School transcript, forcing him to stay back home and finish a class.

But a spokesman for Penn State confirmed that theĀ  5-foot-11, 170-pound Robinson was on the Penn State practice field.

Robinson will wear number 20 for the Nittany Lions.

Penn State opens their season Saturday, August 31 at 3:30 ET against Syracuse in a game scheduled to be televised on ABC/ESPN2.

    I represented Dist 5 when I and the School dist Searched dillingetly for a location between century and walnut high schools to cobine these two schools were each student body was small. This consolidation was met with some opposition but nearly 20 years of academic and athletic success proves it was the right thing to do. I realize no one wants to loose their family high school where they and many of their family members graduated from, particularly Walnut Hill named after the community founder and patriarch of so many members of the ward family, who I consider my good friends. Change is difficult but sometimes necessary.

    With that said I want to personally congratulate young Mr Robinson for his future at Penn State. Not only athletically but academically. I personally knew the late Mrs. Leola Robinson from Century and he if he is related to her is from a fine christen family. Again the best of luck and you have made Escambia County proud.
