Profile America - Eddie Robinson

WASHINGTON -  Eddie Robinson became the head football coach of a small segregated college in 1941.  He mowed the field himself, taped players' ankles, and even wrote up the games for the local newspaper.  OnOctober 7, 1995Eddie Robinson accomplished what had been thought to be impossible — winning the 400th game as coach of the same school, now called Grambling State University.  When he retired in 1997, Robinson's teams had won 17 conference titles and 9 times were named the National Black College champions.  More than 200 of his players went on to play professional football.  Across the country, there are 628 college football teams
