Being the son of a veteran NFL coach has it advantages and disadvantages.
Kyle Robiskie, the son of Atlanta Falcon wide receiver coach Terry Robiskie is making the best of a difficult situation. Kyle is a senior and will remain in Florida with his mother Cynthia while dad has moved to Atlanta to start his job for the Falcons.
Kyle will play his senior season at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Ft Lauderdale Fl, something the talented wide receiver is excited about.
"It will be tough being away from dad, but I wanted to finish up my high school career here," the younger Robiskie said. "This will be a good transition. I'm excited about playing at Cardinal Gibbons."
Robiskie, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete that runs a 4.6 forty, recently attended both junior day camps at SMU.
"I ran well and caught the ball really well," Robiskie said. "I attended both their junior day camps; the first one there wasn't as many guys there. The second day there was so many great athletes."
Robiskie's older brother Andrew is an offensive lineman for SMU, which has allowed Kyle to get to know the campus and coaches on the Hilltop already.
"My dad and Coach Jones are close friends," Robiskie said. "Andrew really loves it here, it's a great place and the football program is headed in the right direction."
Robiskie is not only impressed with the athletics at SMU, he is also impressed with its academic reputation.
"I know I will get a quality education at SMU," Robiskie said. "A degree from SMU gives you great opportunities after football is over."
Robiskie currently has no official offers but is hoping a solid senior season at Cardinal Gibbons will change that.
"Right now Mississippi State, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Miami of Ohio and SMU are showing a lot of interest," Robiskie said. "I'm looking forward to having a break out senior season; everything else will take care of itself."
