Usually, if you see your dad walking down the hall of your school it means you’re in trouble.  Junior Terrance Williams, however, doesn’t need to panic when he sees his father in the halls, because he works here.

Williams walks the halls with his father, para-educator and varsity boys basketball coach Corey Robinson.

Robinson has been a basketball coach for 17 years and attended Watkins Mill High School the year that the school opened. He even played for the Watkins Mill team from 1989 to 1993, putting him on the very first basketball team. Not only does he coach at WMHS, but he also coaches an Amateur Athletic Union basketball team called the Wheaton Wolves. In his spare time, Robinson also does training and is a DJ on the side.

Williams has been playing basketball for as long as he can remember. “Throughout my high school career, I made the switch over from football and my whole passion was in basketball,” Williams said.

Playing for your father’s team can produce more pressure and higher expectations, which in the long-run may be beneficial. “He expects the tip-top best out of me because I’m his son,” Williams added. “But it’s not too bad. He knows my ability and he can push me [to] the limit. He knows what I’m good at and what I’m bad at so we can work together on that.”

Robinson wants to make sure that all the players have over a 3.0 GPA and are good model citizens to the Montgomery Village area by the time he stops coaching. It’s his “dream program.”

Depending on his high school career, Williams plans on getting looks from colleges in the next year and maybe even going to a prep school then transferring to a bigger college. “Ultimately I want to play basketball on a college level,” Williams added.

“I just want him to understand how hard it is,” Robinson said. “Dedication and hard work will take you a long way in life. I want him to understand how hard you have to work and it’s an everyday process. And being a good person, son, citizen and friend will get you a long way.”
