Robins is a six-year member of Osseo Area Schools CI-Adapted sports teams and has been a varsity starter in soccer, floor hockey and softball for the last five years. He has earned 17 varsity letters, 10 all-conference honors, two all-conference honorable mention honors, and has been named to five all-tournament teams.

During Robins’ career, the district’s CI-Adapted program has posted a combined record of 192-34-3.

“While Jason’s statistics are amazing, his true value to our team and the district’s CI-Adapted athletics program goes beyond his numbers,” said Kelli Waalk-Gilbertson, head coach of CI-Adapted sports in Osseo Area Schools. “Jason’s work ethic, sense of teamwork and display of sportsmanship are second to none. He constantly encourages his teammates and is a wonderful role model to our younger players. His congratulations after games are more than just a hand-slap: they are heartfelt words. Whenever coaches need a hand, Jason is always ready to lend one. He doesn’t do these things for accolades—he does them because he’s such an all-around good guy.”

Robins is the eighth player in Osseo Area Schools history to receive this award. He will return to the program next year as an alumni coach.
