The Robinson Athletic Hall of Fame ‘„‹•‘‡…‘†ƒ”›…Š‘‘Ž‹•‘™‹‘”–Š‡”‹”‰‹‹ƒƒ•DzŠ‡ ‘‡‘ˆŠƒ’‹‘•dzƒ†‹–‹• a well deserved accolade for both State Championship teams, great Coaches, and outstanding athletes. After more than 40 years of athletic excellence, a group of present and past staff members decided it was time to recognize this excellence and establish the Robinson Athletic Hall of Fame. Due to the sheer numbers of State Championship teams and athletes who have been recognized as All Region, All Met, All State, and All Americans,it was necessary to prioritize the eligibility of worthy candidates. The Committee decided that for the first 5 years of inductions, Coaches must be retired and athletes will have been graduated for 15 years. In addition, first consideration for induction would be given to those with any combination of: multiple All State/Met selections, multiple State Championships, professional careers. After 5 years, the criteria for selection will reviewed by the Committee.

Frank Ruth My first day at Robinson was it's very first faculty meeting on the evening of June 7,1971. It was also the day of my first daughter's birth at 2:30 A.M. After teaching a full day at Frost, I arrived, very tired, from the hospital with a camera still around my neck and sat in the front row. Fearing I would doze off, I took some frames of Mr.Coffey to keep alert. Grace Hill ,who was coming from Groveton to do the yearbook, found out who I was and called later in the summer asking if I would be the yearbook photography advisor. Little did I know the long hours and years that saying yes was going to take. That was four decades ago. I retired in 1997, but am still at the "Big R". Why all the photography? After graduating from W&M in June,1964 I left to go to West Germany for three years as Artillery Second Lieutenant Ruth with the 2/37 Artillery Battalion on the East German border's Meinigen Gap. But it was with a very sad heart. My mother was dying of cancer. I came back home briefly on emergency leave five months later. Just before the end, she looked at me and said "Franklin,as you go through life leave a trail of good things behind you". It was not until Robinson's first soccer team played their initial game that I finally figured out the way to honor her. I heard the soccer boys, after their game, saying that "now they were to be big time" since Mr. Ruth would put the pictures in a case in the main hall. The rest is history. A lot of yearbooks, a zillion pictures for our athletes, and many Athletic Awards evenings. I hope the pictures have helped make Robinson a happier place for the students. Seldom have I taken a picture that I did not see the students showing that picture to their grandchildren- years later! Principal Meier had a "Frank Ruth Gallery" set of display cases placed in the main hall. Now this old fellow has a place to put pictures again.
