A nice moment before the football game between Robinson and Flora Friday evening.

Robinson High School graduate Meyers Leonard was honored by having his number retired. A banner of his #32 Robinson jersey will hang in the gym at Robinson reflecting his time at Robinson High School from 2006 to 2010, as well as his selection in the NBA Draft in 2012. Leonard went to the U of I for two seasons before being drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Following the ceremony, battling emotions, Leonard announced he and his wife are donating $10,000 to Robinson schools for all Robinson has done for him.
