Starpoint's Robinson earns Bill Hein Award
May 23, 2018


BLASDELL — Nearly three months after claiming a state title, it still feels surreal to Anthony Robinson that he's a NYS champion — Starpoint's first state champion wrestler — in the 285-pound weight class. Even on Monday night at the 23rd Annual Ilio DiPaolo Scholarship Fund Awards Night, he was still struggling to find the words to describe his monumental year.

But when Robinson was told by his coach that he was going to be expecting a call from the committee about being presented The Bill Hein Award, one thing was for sure: he had as much of an ideal final year with the Spartans wrestling program as you would want. Robinson was one of five recipients of an award on Monday night at Ilio DiPaolo Family Restaurant and Banquet Facility.
