He showed amazing grit and maturity fighting through the trials and tribulations following his family tragedy. Everyone in the Robinson community was touched by that event and inspired by how Jermaine dealt with it in a positive manner. A lesser man would have faltered, but Jermaine responded in a tremendous way. He is the type of kid I would be proud to call my son." "If we needed tough yards, we gave it to Jermaine. He is hard-nosed and strong as a bull, but he's also pretty talented. We played a (Hillsborough) county all-star game recently featuring a bunch of Division I players and Jermaine was the most productive back there."
