Dennison Robinson Signs with Slaughter
Hoffman Estates, IL -- The Chicago Slaughter of the Continental Indoor Football League, is proud to announce the signing of Dennison Robinson, the 2008 Arena Football League Defensive Player of the Year. A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Robinson, 30, will anchor the Slaughter defense during the 2009 season after playing the past three seasons with the Chicago Rush. Robinson will be reunited with Rush teammate DeJuan Alfonzo, who also signed with the Slaughter this season.
"The Slaughter is extremely proud to have signed a player like Dennison Robinson," said Slaughter General Manager, Alan Perkins. "It takes a special player to accomplish the things that Dennison did in the AFL and I am confident he will be an impact player."
The 6'0", 195-pound Robinson led the AFL with 13 interceptions during the 2008 season, returning two of them for touchdowns. He also led the Rush in tackles with 102 during the 2007 season which is an all-time team record. Robinson's AFL career also includes stints with the Las Vegas Gladiators (2002-2004) and the Grand Rapids Rampage (2005). He was named to the AFL all-rookie team in 2002, and was named the Las Vegas team Ironman of the Year twice while with the Gladiators.
Prior to joining the AFL, Robinson played one year in the AFL2, as he played in 16 games for the Quad Cities Steamwheelers in 2001. Robinson played effectively on both sides of the ball while in Quad Cities, scoring 15 touchdowns on offense while picking off 8 passes on defense.
