"IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME"
James D. Robinson has dedicated himself to the Maumee High School Panther family since his hire in 1983 and continues to impact the community. In 2015 as he earns his induction to the Athletic Hall of Fame, a recognition program he helped to start.
Jim was a dedicated coach and Athletic Director. Most notably, “Robbie” coached the men’s basketball team for 21 seasons. During this time, his team achieved seven NLL championships, five Sectional championships, and two District runners-up. His successes were acknowledged outside of Maumee High School as he was named NLL Coach of the Year for seven years; in 1985-86 both The Toledo Blade and the Associated Press named him Co-Coach of the Year.
As Maumee’s softball coach, Jim achieved similar success. His teams were three-time NLL champions, and Jim was named NLL Coach of the Year each of these years. In 1986, the team’s 28-4 record earned them the District championship. The team was Regional runner-up in 1987 and Sectional runner-up in 1988. During this time, The Toledo Blade named Maumee’s softball team “Team of the Decade.”
Jim Robinson’s contributions to high school athletics led to over twenty Coach of the Year awards as well as coaching in twelve District All-Star Games. He was inducted into the District 7 Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2008 and the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association’s Hall of Fame in 2014.
