Colorado State Ram basketball player Freddy Robinson finally got some good news for once, in a college career filled with disappointment.
Rams' head coach Dale Layer announced Tuesday that Robinson had been approved to receive another year of eligibility due to medical hardship.
Robinson has played in only six games in the past two years after missing all of last year. He had surgery on his Achilles tendon in the off-season, and missed most of the 2003-04 season after suffering a back injury.
"We are very excited that Freddy has been awarded the year of medical hardship," said Layer in press release from the CSU athletic department. "He had the misfortune of not being able to play for two season due to injury. He has been very dedicated to [returning physically] to the level he has set for himself."
Robinson will enter this year's season listed as a 6-foot-5, 215-pound junior and has two years remaining on his eligibility. The last time he played, during the 2003-04 season, he averaged 8.9 points and 3 rebounds per game.
"It means a great deal to Freddy to be able to continue his playing career," said Layer in the release.
