There is no doubting Notre Dame wide receiver Corey Robinson’s abilities on the football field. However, it seems that he is just as good of a human being as he is an athlete.
He has been trying to make a difference in every young athlete’s life with an idea that started with his roommate giving away his old football cleats. He wrote about how he and his roommate, Andrew Helmin, a Notre Dame junior and former track team member, came up with One Shirt One Body, a non-profit organization that encourages student-athletes to give away their old athletic apparel to those in need.
Robinson and Helmin went from presenting their idea to athletic administrators at the school to doing so to representatives frome every school in the ACC at the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. It was voted on, unanimously, to be accepted as a conference-wide initiative.
The initiative has now been adopted across the country as a way to give back to the athletes that aspire to be just like Robinson and Derrick Henry and Deshaun Watson.
This just proves that not all college athletes are focused on themselves and their future. Robinson wants to use his success as inspiration for the young athletes across the country.
