Maurice Stovall of Archbishop Carroll receives the first Coach Millard Robinson Memorial Award.
Wednesday, November 28, 2001
On this date, the first presentation of the Coach Millard Robinson Memorial Award was realized. The presentation was made at the Delaware County Football Coaches' Association annual banquet to recognize "Outstanding Value and Contribution."
Carl Gersbach '64, Gene Melcher '59, Lou Dickinson '58, Ed Harris '61, Jim Bruce '57, Joanne Robinson Kennedy, Coach's daughter, and Michael Corner, Coach's grandson, were in attendance for the first award to be presented in Coach's name. Carl Gersbach took the podium to speak about the award and present the plaque to Maurice Stovall, senior receiver, free safety, and punt returner for Archbishop Carroll. Carl was followed by Dan Bielli, Carroll's head football coach, who talked about Stovall and his contributions "beyond the scoreboard," which was the key criteria for this award. Bielli . . . "Mo is a humble kid. As a sophomore, I think his humility may have hurt him. He was always too shy to go to the front of the line . . . Look at what he's done in the last two years. He has refined his skills. It's overwhelming to see him play. . . . He does it all. He's a special player . . . There's a fluidity about him. He has the total package." [Stovall had 31 catches for 745 yards, nine touchdowns, five interceptions and four punt returns for scores.] Info from Delaware County Daily Times by John Lohn
Stovall was also selected 2001 Daily Times Football Player of the Year. He is now attending and playing for Notre Dame.
