Mr. Robbins Neighborhood (MRN) was established in 2014 by 12-year NFL veteran Fred Robbins and his wife, Tia. The organization’s foundation is rooted in the couple’s passion to provide guidance and mentorship to young athletes on their life journeys.
Fred was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, a city that is well-known for producing tremendous professional talents across the sports spectrum, such as Emmitt Smith, Derrick Brooks, Doug Baldwin, Reggie Evans, Roy Jones Jr. and Bubba Watson. However, upon returning home after retirement, Fred and Tia recognized that for every success story there were many more stories of young, talented athletes that had their dreams derailed. It became apparent that for many aspiring youth in the area, all hope for the future was hinged solely on becoming a professional athlete. The athletes weren’t developing a backup plan or gaining a deeper persepctive of success because their dreams, goals and academia were never developed beyond their sports dreams.
