The Bethune Cookman Wildcats and Coach Terry Sims could do nothing but smile every time time the Wildcat defense forced their opponents to punt the ball. That is because standing in a distance awaiting the ball was a player I would call  “Mr. Dynamite” in the form of Jimmie Robinson. The 5 foot 8 inch Senior  had electricity flowing through every part of his being each time he touched the rock. Robinson  returned 32 kicks this season for a whopping 872 yards and averaged 27.25 yards per return.

The  young man from Palm Coast,Florida also caught 39 passes for 468 yards and ran the ball from scrimmage 17 times for 77 yards. Robinson finished his senior season in Daytona Beach with five touchdowns (1 he returned for a TD and the other 4 were touchdown receptions). The touchdown figure could be deceiving, the five trips to the house are not indicative of  how a player with Robinsons’ talent gave opponents nightmares  week in and week out.

One game that stands out was on October 5, 2019  when the Wildcats got a visit from the Bears of Morgan State. This is the game in which Robinson grabbing 5 passes for 136 yards went to the house  3 out of the 5 times he caught the ball. Robinson averaged 27.2 yards  per reception in the Wildcats 31-20 win and his longest reception on the day was a 70 yard  jaunt to the end zone. The Wildcats captain was most definitely instrumental in helping  the Bethune-Cookman finish the 2019 season with 7 wins agains 4 losses and ranked 6th on The Final 2019 Urban Media Today Black College Football Poll.
