Brian Robinson, cross country and track and field coach at Alexander for 23 years, was named Cross Country Coach of the Year for Georgia by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA) on January 11, 2017. One boys coach and one girls coach from each state were chosen by a committee of experts from around the nation.

Alexander High School brought home the cross country state title on November 5, 2016. Senior Braeden Collins led the effort and was the Individual State Champion. Alexander also won the Region 5AAAAAA and Douglas County championships this season.

“This would not have been possible without the outstanding coaches who coach with me, including Steve Duncan, Jeff Railey and Mike Camp,” said Coach Robinson. “Steve, Jeff, and I have been coaching together for 14 years and without them, along with my wife Valli Robinson, this would not have been possible.”

In addition to coaching, Coach Robinson teaches Economics for seniors and World History for sophomores. He is married to Valli Robinson, media specialist at Alexander. Their son Mason is a freshman at the school.

State winners for USTFCCA Cross Country Coach of the Year were selected based on their team’s performance throughout the 2016 season, including team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their team’s performance stacked up to previous years. Coach Robinson and the other state winners are in consideration for the association’s National High School Cross Country Coach of the Year award.
