When I Was a Freshman - Nate Robinson

By: Simon

Name: Nate Robinson
High School: Rainier Beach (Seattle, WA)
Freshman Year: 1998-1999

With a Slam Dunk Championship under his belt, little Nate Robinson is doing big things as a member of the New York Knicks. While he may be a big star now, there was a time when Nate was just a wide-eyed freshman in high school runnin' from seniors. We caught up with the Nate, who is just 5'9", as he reflected on his early high school days in Seattle.

Simon: What school did you attend for your freshman year of high school?

Nate Robinson: Very energetic, the class clown. I was a fun dude, everybody knew who I was. I played varsity as a freshman.

Nate Robinson: I ran track for my school. I played football, but I didn't play for my high school, I played for a little league team.

Simon: What musical artists did you listen to at the time?

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3
