Sports were Robbie’s life. As a child he played many sports, but football was his passion. Ever a diehard Falcon’s fan, his love of football propelled his performance at the sport. A senior, at Roswell High, he led the Hornets to a 10-3 record and final top-10 ranking in Georgia’s Class 7A. He threw for 3,010 yards and 37 touchdowns this past season. Recently he was named Offensive Player of the year by his region’s coaches for Region 5, Class 7A. Not only was Robbie a talented athlete, but he also exceled in the classroom as an honor student. He had received numerous scholarship offers from colleges across the country to play football. Robbie was a leader both on and off the field. A great quarterback, he was an even better teammate. His energy and optimism were contagious. Hard-working, honest, and humble by nature, he was profoundly proud of all that he and his team had accomplished. For all who knew him, Robbie will be remembered as a compassionate, smart, charismatic person with a great sense of humor. He was a great friend, brother, and son who will be sorely missed.
