Johnstown Head Coach Robinson Steps Down, on to the Field
JOHNSTOWN, PA - Sensing his team needed a spark, Johnstown head coach Quenteen Robinson took an extreme measure.
Robinson resigned today (Wednesday, April 28) as the Generals head coach, then promptly signed his UIFL player contract. He will only play in this week's home game, Friday against Western PA.
"Quenteen is the consummate professional," said Generals General Manager Jason Heffran. "He put his heart and soul into the Johnstown Generals as their head coach and I am confident that his return to the playing field will be a successful one. The Johnstown community and the Generals organization are eagerly anticipating this week's match-up. Seeing 'Q' wear the blue and hold will be a sight to behold."
Robinson, who has played with several of indoor teams that has called Johnstown home, will suit up at receiver and defensive back.
"Well its been hard watching my Generals go battle and come up short," said Robinson. "Been hard watching my players stress! To much built up energy that needs released. I think its time to put the pads back on and make things happen. Let me check my 18 man (roster). I am bout to put myself on it!!"
Tickets for Friday's game at the Cambria County Memorial Arena are just $9, and the seats are on first-come, first-serve basis. The tickets will also allow attendance to the WPIFL game that follows.
