Eddie Robinson to be inducted into North Carolina Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2013

By Jonathan Kaplan

Dynamo broadcaster, U-16 Academy coach and former MLS all-star Eddie Robinson was selected as an inductee to the North Carolina Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2013. Robinson - along with Curt Johnson and the late Barry Howard - will be inducted at the annual Hall of Fame dinner, January 26, 2013 in Greensboro, NC.

Robinson, who grew up in Greensboro and was an all-state player at Page High School, was a four-year letterwinner at UNC Chapel Hill (1996-2000). He was selected by the San Jose Earthquakes as the No. 20 overall pick of the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. He played 11 seasons with the same MLS franchise, first with the Earthquakes and then with the Houston Dynamo when the franchise moved to Texas after the 2005 season.

The four-time MLS Cup winner retired following the 2011 season to join the Dynamo front office.
