Phenix City, AL (WRBL) – The Bi-City Area can be described as a hot bed of football talent. One example is current Texas A&M running back coach Tommie Robinson. Coach Robinson played his high school football at Central High School and he also was an assistant coach for the Red Devils football program.


His coaching career is one impressive resume. Coach Robinson has had coaching stops in some of the signature programs in college football. They include: Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, Miami, USC, Texas, and he was on the coaching staff for the 2019 National Championship LSU Tigers.
