AFL Names Wesley's Robinson Player of the Week

More news about: Wesley

TULSA, Okla. - The Arena Football League named former Wesley College Bryan Robinson its Riddell Defensive Player of the Week.  

Robinson, a member of the Kansas City Command, recorded four tackles, four sacks and one blocked kick in the Command's victory over the Spokane Shock, 45-42. Robinson ranks second in the AFL in tackles for a loss (10.0).

He shares this honor with Chicago's Vic Hall.

Robinson has been a member of the AFL's Cleveland Gladiators, played in the United Football League for the New York Sentinals and with the Manchester Wolves of areanafootball2.  He finished ninth in AF2 with 10 sacks for the Wolves.  He had also signed with the Hamilton TigerCats of the Canadian Football league after the AF2 season, before being scooped up by the UFL.

In the summer of 2008, he was among the final cuts of the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL.

Robinson anchored the Wesley defense for four years, leading the team to a 44-7 record, three trips to the NCAA Playoffs and two trips to the national semifinals. As a senior, he led a team that advanced to the national quarterfinals and won both the Lambert-Meadowlands and ECAC Team of the Year Awards. Robinson was named to the AP Little All-American First Team and the American Football Coaches Association All-American First Team in 2007. His selection to the D3football.comAll-American First Team was his third selection by that outlet, as was his D3football.com All-South Region Defensive Player of the Year Award. Robinson was also chosen as the ECAC All-Southwest Region Player of the Year. He was named All-Atlantic Central Football Conference (ACFC) First Team four times and was the ACFC Defensive Player of the Year three times.

Robinson finished his career as both Wesley's and the ACFC's all-time leader with 47 sacks and 92.5 tackles for loss. He also ranks among the school's all-time leaders in tackles.
