Coach GRob has been involved in lacrosse since his youth days in Westminster, Maryland.  During that time as a player, coach, teacher, administrator, and entrepreneur he has structured success in the states of Maryland, Ohio, Florida, and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Currently, he is entering his ninth year as head coach of Lake Mary High School where he has built a below average program into one of the top programs in the state of Florida on an annual basis.  Prior to Lake Mary he was the head coach at Gulliver Prep in Miami for seven years where his teams consistently earned their way to the final four or state semi-finals over a seven-year period. He also created and lead the initial Palmer Trinity team in Miami to a state championship in 1992. During his tenure Coach Robinson has had at least one player named All American in his past seventeen years of coaching and his players have gone on to become impact players at top lacrosse colleges and universities such as Princeton, Duke, and Gettysburg among many others.

In addition, he was a successful high school varsity head football coach in the states of Ohio and Florida and was named Cincinnati Coach of the year in 1996. A number of his players went to play collegiate ball at top programs such as Florida State, Duke, Pennsylvania, Rutgers, and Miami among others. During the first part of his career he also served as a high school/K-12 Athletic Director and independent school athletic consultant over a fifteen-year period as well.

During his time at Lake Mary, his teams have twice qualified for the state final four, won four Seminole County Championships, and eight District Championships. He has been named Seminole County Coach of the Year three times and is an inducted member of the US Lacrosse South Florida Chapter Hall of Fame as a coach.

As a player coach Robinson set records and earned honors for both his highly successful high school and college teams where he served as a captain for both programs in his senior years.  He was a three-year starter in goal for Westminster Senior High which has been a powerhouse program in the state of Maryland since his playing days.  As a four-year starter for Gettysburg College he still holds the records for most saves in a game, season, and career.  During this time Gettysburg, as a Division III school, he traditionally played versus current Division I programs; Towson, Loyola, Georgetown, UMBC, Mt. St Marys, Bucknell, Lafayette, Lehigh, Drexel, Lehigh, and Penn State, in addition to the top Division III programs in the country.

Coach Robinson is married to Amy Robinson, a Bryn Mawr College graduate, who hails from Chicago and has a high school son, Owen, and elementary school son, Jack.
