Wildcats Robinson ready to face former college teammates

April 7, 2006

Albany - The countdown for kickoff is almost here for the South Georiga Wildcats.

The 2006 season opener is Saturday night against the Tennessee Valley Vipers.

One player who might be able to provide some inside scouting report on the Vipers, is Wildcat receiver-defensive back Tim Robinson.

The Montgomery native played his college football at Alabama A&M in Huntsville which is also home for the Tennessee Valley Vipers.

Robinson was recruited by the Bulldogs to play quarterback and moved to receiver his final two seasons at A&M.

His athletic ability caught the eye of Wildcats head coach Donnie Davis who believes the rookie could blossom into a star in the AF2 league.

While the South Georgia Wildcat roster is loaded with players from South Georgia, Tennessee Valley has several former Alabama A&M Bulldogs.

A couple of whom played were college teammates of Tim Robinson.

Robinson though is downplaying the reunion just a bit.

Tim Robinson said "It is kinda of exciting. More anxious feeling than anything because this is my first game in this league. I just want to go out thereand do a good job. Fortunately I get to play against my old teammates. So, it is going to be alot of fun and it is going to be exciting."

The South Georgia Wildcats face the Tennessee Valley Vipers for the first time since 2003 when the Wildcats were in Fayetteville North Carolina.

Tennessee Valley won that first meeting 57-54 in Huntsville.

Saturday's starts at 7:30pm at the Albany Civic Center.
