“I just want to thank (Director of Athletics) Derrick Ramsey and Coach (Alecia) Shields-Gadson for the opportunity to be part of the Coppin State family,” Robinson said. “I am looking forward to winning and the best way to do that is to start out by having everybody being accountable and working hard everyday.”
