Woodlake's 3-sport star has bright future ahead (KFSN)

What's in a name? For Woodlake Tigers freshman Robby Stevenson a lot.

"Well my grandpa was the head coach for 42 years I want to say, my uncle played pro baseball so they expect a lot out of me but it's okay I like that," says Stevenson.

This past football season, Stevenson made the jump from JV football to Varsity after the starting quarterback went down with an injury.

"He ended up throwing for 1300 yards, 14 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, we ended up winning our first league championship in 16 years," said Woodlake head football coach Jose Del Rio.

"He's a kid who really just keeps his composure, handles the pressure well," says baseball head coach Raul Quintero. "Big game stage, he seems to really relish it and wants to be on that stage."

The stage has been set for Robinson who in just his freshman year is the quarterback, pitcher and shortstop on the baseball team along with playing basketball as well. All natural leadership roles with an attitude of team first.

"When I see them down, I try to pick them up even though I might get down. So I always somebody pick me up to, I feed off of that and then people follow me too," says Stevenson.
