Reynaud S. “Rey” Robinson, M.ED
Coach Robinson has had a long reputation of high achievement and excellent performance in track & field, both as a runner, as well as a coach. In 1970, at the young age of 18 years old, Rey won an MVP Award for the 100 and 220 yard dash during the Golden West Invitational Track & Field Meet. That would be the start of a long track record of victories. In 1972, now a part of the USA Olympic Team, Rey Robinson continued on to have a 9.9 world record time in the 100 meter dash and a 6.1 world record hand time in the 60 meter dash during the United States Olympic Trials. He also participated in the United States Olympic Trials in year 1976. Just a few years later, in 1980, he returned to the United States Olympic Trials, was inducted into the Florida Track & Field Hall of Fame, and also began working as an Elite Sprint & Agility Training Specialist –a position he still holds to this day. From 1981 to 1985 he successfully coached sprint runners at St. Augustine College, as well as at Florida A&M University, and then was inducted into FAMU Sports Hall of Fame in 1986. By the nineties, Rey was coaching sprint runners at the University of South Florida (1992-1998) and was also inducted into the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) Sports Hall of Fame in 1992. From 1999 to 2009, he was the Head Track & Field Coach at FAMU. In 2010, he was yet again inducted into a Hall of Fame when Polk County Sports Hall of Fame gladly added his name to the list. One year later, in 2011, he was American Champion Walter Dix’s sprint coach and led Walter to win silver medals during the World Championship’s 100 meter and 200 meter runs. Coach Rey Robinson continues to be celebrated as a prominent figure in the track & field industry and will always be recognized as that coach you need to hire to take you to the next level of running.
