As a Penn State graduate, there have been many players that I’ve called “my favorite” over the years from Kerry Collins to Larry Johnson to Paul Posluszny to the entire 2012 team – I probably throw around the word favorite a lot. However, after getting the chance to interview Michael Robinson this summer when he was at NFL Films participating in Broadcast Bootcamp, it is going to be hard for anyone else to ever top him as my favorite Nittany Lion.
After watching Robinson play his senior year at PSU (2005-my first full year at NFL Films), I began brainstorming ways I could get him into an NFL Films show. It took a little bit of time, but as soon as I heard he made the Pro Bowl last year, I began pitching this piece that will be featured as part of our series NFL Films Presents this week.
In this feature, you will learn about Robinson’s unconventional journey to making his first Pro Bowl. My first version of this piece was nine minutes long. Below is a memorable moment from Robinson’s career that didn’t make the final segment. To see the rest of the feature, check out NFL Films Presents on ESPN2 12/18 at 12:30 a.m. ET and 12/19 at 2:30 p.m. ET and on the NFL Network 12/21 at 4:30 p.m. ET and 12/22 at 7:30 a.m. ET and 1:30 pm ET.
