FINAL FOUR JUICE: THOMAS ROBINSON , A TRUE SOLDIER AT HEART!!

Morning folks, God is good all the time. Well let’s get right to it. God is good and God has done wonderful things for many people. There’s is no exception when speaking about KANSAS’ THOMAS ROBINSON. Robinson has had a sensantional year leading the JAYHAWKS into the Final Four. Just chosen as a finalist for the NAISMITH trophy , Robinson also is a first team ALL AMERICAN. However , Robinson’s story is sort of different in many ways. Two years ago, Robinson was a highly recruited phenom out of the D.C. area who then signed to play at KANSAS. His freshmen season was great, coming off the bench behind the MORRIS TWINS , however things sort of took a turn for the worst. Robinson lost his grandmother and mother within a short span, which not only left his heart pounding but also left his younger sister, JAYLA , a 7 year old at the time , out without parental support. Upon playing the University of Texas , Robinson experienced nothing but tradgedy , however with the support of his teammates , he played through pain. Following the loss to Texas, the JAYHAWK team flew to D.C. to attend Robinson’s mother funeral. Thomas , along with his younger sister Jayla sat together as they laid to rest their mother. The NCAA granted the University of Kansas permission to help off set fees associated with the funeral as well as other expenses to help Thomas and  Jayla soften the blow. Thomas returned to Kansas to finish the season as the JAYHAWKS lost in the Elite Eight to VCU. Thomas had more on his mind other than basketball. Robinson was more focused on taking care of his younger sister. After having surgery, Robinson rehabbed and made a committment to himself and his mother to take care of his little sister. Robinson to the leadership role of the team and lead Kansas to a BIG 12 season ring as well as the the 2012 Final Four. Many believe this could be Robinson’s coming out party but we will knoe in a few days. However, taking good care of his sister is a goal that he may achieve sooner than ever. With the NBA’s dollars staring him in the face , Jayla may get everything she wants including being with her big brother again while he satisfies a promise made to take care of his little sister. In the meantime, Thomas Robinson’s goal is to win a NCAA Championship. What do yall think…….realtalkrealsports!
