Robbie Robinson: The Nation’s Finest Forward

When reflecting on who the best player in the country has been this season, Robbie Robinson’s name should be the first mentioned. The junior from Camden, S.C., is in the midst of one of the finest seasons that a Clemson men’s soccer player has ever produced. The production throughout the year has been consistent and impactful, with Robinson contributing two or more points in 10 of the 16 matches he’s played in.

For Robinson’s exemplary efforts, he was named the 2019 ACC Offensive Player of the Year and earned All-ACC First Team honors. The accolade comes after earning ACC Offensive Player of the Week honors in consecutive weeks during the regular season. Robinson’s been joined by Kimarni Smith and Grayson Barber in the team’s historic offensive efficiency, with the three players contributing to log 96 points. The 2019 Clemson team has accumulated 202 points, the most since 1998, while allowing less than a goal a game.

Within the program’s record books, Robinson is tied for 6th all-time in Clemson history for assists in a match, contributing three in the team’s contest against Syracuse. Robinson’s 15 goals and 39 points are the most by a player in either category since 2002 and is one of six players in the past 20 years to contribute nine or more assists. Robinson is also the first Clemson player since 1998 to record multiple hat-tricks in a season.

Robinson currently sits within the top 10 of eight different offensive categories in the NCAA. Out of those eight categories, Robinson leads six of them within the ACC and only trails teammate Tanner Dieterich in one other. Robinson’s 39 points, an average of 2.44 per game, are the most by a player within a Power-5 conference this season.
