Coach Robinson came to Montreat a few years after I graduated from Montreat. He made me feel as if I were one of his players. He went out of his way to speak to me at every home game and to come see my HS team that I coached play even when he wasn't recruiting one of my players. I am thrilled that he is close to this milestone and that the news media is making note of it. He is truly a one-of-a-kind coach. This is evidenced in that while his teams have dominated the conference in recent years, his peers have respected him enough to vote him coach of the year 3 times.

Coach Robinson is an Outstanding Basketball Coach, and Great Man of Faith and Family. I've known him for 9 years and he does it the right way. His loyalty and compassion for his players is unmatched. The family atmosphere he creates is an honor to be a part of.

I am so glad my son gets to play for such a fine gentleman and christian. Coach Robinson teaches more than basketball. He teaches life lessons.

I'm glad to have played under a coach such as Coach Robinson. He believed in me and gave me a chance, most other coaches might have not done, so I will always remember him for that. Its one thing to have a reputation, but I was a witness to Coach's character, day in and day out the three and a half years I played for him. Congratulations Coach.

We first met Bill Robinson in the summer of 2002 at the Montreat basketball camp. Bill is one of the finest people you will ever meet. A great coach, father, and friend, Bill is a true Christian. His influence on us all has been wonderful. When looking for a role model for your children you could not possibly fine a finer individual. Congratulations Bill on your first 199 wins.

Coach Bill Robinson has always been a man of silent integrity and character. I'm pleased to see his coaching career do so well. I am proud to have been a classmate of his in New Jersey at Atlantic Christian School, where he went out of his way to be a freind to me, and an example of what a young man shoud be like to all of his classmates.
God Bless You Bill!

Bill Robinson exemplifies everything a parent could hope for in a coach. He has consistently shown through his actions that basketball is just a game, and life is more than basketball. He treats his players as if they were his own, and we are extremely grateful for his caring leadership during good times and bad. Thanks Coach!
