“He’s Really a Heck of a Young Man”: Coach Speaks Out after Well-Liked Rookie NFL Player Shot in Horrific Robbery

An NFL rookie running back named Brian Robinson, a new player for the Washington Commanders, was shot multiple times during an attempted armed robbery in Washington, D.C. on Sunday night.

Head Coach Ron Rivera met with his young player and spoke about that meeting on Monday.

“The doctors were very positive with him, and he was very positive as well,” Rivera began on Robinson’s condition. “We’re very fortunate. He’s very fortunate. 

It’s a very unfortunate situation. But he’s doing well. It will be a matter of time before he’s back out here. There’s no timeline, but as I said, everything was very positive.”

As a head coach, Rivera has received other phone calls about dangerous off-the-field injuries to his players in the past.

“It was hard. I’ve gotten several calls as a head coach, unfortunately. But this was one of the harder ones. 

First of all, because he’s a heck of a young man – more than just a football player, he’s really a heck of a young man. It kind of blindsided me a little bit. We were actually winding the day down when I got the call.”

Over the last day and a half, more information on the incident has surfaced.

Washington, D.C. police have released images of the individuals who are assumed to be involved in the attempted robbery.

According to police, via Fox News, the suspects “brandished handguns and attempted to rob the victim.”

“The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without obtaining any property. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries,” the police concluded in their news release.

Police have also released images of the suspects, asking “anyone who can identify these individuals and/or this vehicle, or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s test tip line at 50411.

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a violent crime committed in the District of Columbia.”



The outlook for Robinson’s rookie season took a massive nosedive in the hours following this event, but according to reports by ESPN, Robinson may still be able to return at the end of this season.

“It’s just about the healing process, and once he’s well enough to get on the field, doctors have to clear him and we’ll go from there. Everything is positive so far,” said coach Rivera.

Thankfully for Robinson and his family, the woulds are considered to be non-fatal and he is expected to be discharged from the hospital soon.

Many people within the Washington Commanders organization have Robinson’s back and will continue to do so for the duration of his recovery.

He “is a lot of fun to be around. He’s high energy, great dude,” said star Washington quarterback Carson Went. “He was coming out of his shell a little bit. I look forward to seeing him back in here hopefully soon and a big smile on his face; I’m sure it’ll come back real quick.”

  1. The southern states were run by Democrats in the beginning of America’s history. Slavery and no constitutional values. When the Republicans, the Union to the north, Confederate Democrats to the south, won victory for all mankind, the Democrats started heading north to take over all the big cities through politics. Republicans went south to make sure slavery was to an end. Now you see the same thing happening again in the north by Democrats. Keeping people of color living in a 3rd world state. Low grade education, low grade jobs, and working for pennies. Lucky if a man or woman can even find a job or a way out. Education and health go hand in hand for the young men and women of America or any where else for that matter to have a chance in America’s great way of capitalism. These misfortunes lead to poverty and violence in the streets. These young men have no choice but to turn to gangs, drugs, and prostitution. All men I believe want a chance to have a good job and to take care of his family and wife. Very few want lawlessness. The ORGANIZED CRIME RADICAL SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST Democrat PARTY is the problem with society today. When you introduce abortion as a means of birth control into society, you’ve just introduced life has no value. You’ll be robbed and killed for a buck fifty. Raped with no remorse. Beaten to the ground and kicked to death as if you were just a slab of meat to be thrown out. It’s time to become the DEFIANCE against all this RESISTANCE. It’s time for all the diverse nations that have come to America to become AMERI- CANS. You’ve seen this from your government’s from which you have strived to seek freedom here in the land of liberty. Independence from socialism and communism. U.ncle S.am wants You!!! Vote Republican!!! Become the DEFIANCE!!! Use your voice!!! GOD bless America and PRAY for Peace in ISRAEL.
