Robinson was All-America in two sports for North Dakota State in the early 1980s and a standout professional football player who won two Super Bowl rings with the New York Giants of the NFL.

One of the greatest receivers in NDSU football history, he pulled down 88 passes for 1,626 yards and 13 touchdowns over his three-year career. His reception total was second in school history when he departed and remains fourth on the career charts, while his yardage figure was a school record and is still fourth in school annals. He led the team in catches for three straight seasons and his eight TD catches as a senior were a then-school record. He helped the Bison to a 35-4 record over his three seasons including a semifinal appearance in the national championships in 1982, the 1983 national championship, and a second-place national finish in 1984. He was named third-team All-America as a senior by the Associated Press.

Robinson was drafted in the second round by the Giants and played six years in the NFL, helping the Giants to Super Bowl championships in 1987 and 1991. During that time with the Giants he received numerous honors including Most Improved Player, several Player of the Week honors, and Most Outstanding Receiver.

On the college track, he was a six-time North Central Conference champion and a two-time All-American. He won two NCC championships in the outdoor 100 meters, two league titles in the indoor 55-meter dash, and was a member of two league champion 400-meter relay teams. His All-America honors came in the relays, where the Bison finished sixth in the 400-meter relay at the NCAA nationals in 1983 and fifth in that event in 1984.

A native of St. Paul, Minn., he was a three-sport star, earning all-state in football, all-conference and all-metro in basketball, and state champion in both the 100 and 200 meters for Central High School.

He transferred to NDSU after one year at Prairie View A&M in Texas. He earned his bachelor's degree in business management from NDSU and a master's degree in business from Fairleigh Dickinson University. After retiring from the NFL in 1991, he spent two years as Director of Program Development and Player Relations of Pro-To-Go, Inc., was Director of Minority Student Services at Southwest Minnesota State University for two years, and was Director of Student Services at Minneapolis Community College for one year before joining the National Football League Players Association as Director of Player Development.
