It should be noted that Robbie had a flair for winning even as a freshman coach at Oregon. In the fall of 1960 he guided a squad of fledglings to Oregon's last undefeated freshman season. That team included two eventual All-Americas, Bob Berry and Mel Renfro.
I am also proud that I was Robbie's first recruit. He has been a positive factor in my life ever since.

I noted a glaring omission in your story on John Robinson and his boyhood chum, John Madden. Madden played football, baseball and basketball at Jefferson Union High in Daly City, Calif. He may not have been so graceful, but he played a mean game.
