OXFORD — J.F. Webb High School announced it has hired Lamont Robinson as its new head football coach.
“We are so excited to welcome Robinson to the Warrior family,” said Principal Amy Rice. “We look forward to the leadership he will provide our students on and off the field. We anticipate many successful seasons with him in this role.”
A Washington, D.C., native, Robinson played his high school football at H.D. Woodson High School before he transferred his junior year to Duval High School in Lanham, Maryland.
After his high school graduation, Robinson served two years in the Navy. He was stationed on the USS Eisenhower based out of Norfolk, Virgina, and he served in the Aviation Fuels Division.
After completing his military obligation, Robinson enrolled in Prince George’s Community College and then transferred to Salisbury University where he majored in English and Education. At Salisbury, Robinson was a four-year letterman on the Seagulls football team.
After his college graduation, he became a teacher and head junior varsity football coach at Amelia County High School in Amelia, Virginia. Since then, Robinson has served in a variety of coaching roles in North Carolina, including Saint Augustine’s College, S.E. Raleigh High School, Riverside High School, and Warren County.
In 2008, Robinson became the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Phoenix, a member of the Independent Women’s Football League. Robinson will be entering his 20th year as a football coach this season.
Robinson said he is excited about the opportunity to become the head football coach at J.F. Webb High school. Robinson is a father of a 12-year-old son, Mason Robinson.
