Stirring Tribute to Local Legend Doug Robbins
In a moving ceremony on Sunday, Oct. 23, Division Avenue High School dedicated its varsity baseball field to coach Doug Robins. The most winning coach in Division history. Robins, described as a legend, an icon, and a hero, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March of this year. Despite his recent diagnosis Robins still abides by the work ethic he perfected during 38 years as a teacher in the Levittown school system and still comes in to work every day as a coach. "Doug is an amazing man and he has taught us a lot about facing adversity with dignity," said Division principal Kathy Valentino. The more than 100 people who attended the ceremony were testament to the fact that a more fitting tribute could not have been paid to Coach Doug Robins.
