You Can Call Me Coach

A former player reflects on lessons learned from F&M’s Glenn Robinson

by Matt Steinmetz ’86


I played for Glenn Robinson more than 25 years ago.

That puts me in my mid-40s, which must seem old to the young men now playing for Robinson, not to mention the un-coached junior high and high school boys who will start becoming men when they eventually play for him.

Yes, it has been a while since I played for Robinson, and yet I find myself thinking about him more now than at any other time since I graduated from Franklin & Marshall College.

Surely that recall is in part spurred by Robinson’s winning his 800th game this past season, which garnered the national attention it deserved.
