Brian Robison

Brian Gale Robison was born April 27, 1983 to Jimmy and Theresa Robison of Splendora, Texas. Here is an interesting fact: Brian is named after the movie Brian’s Song, a 1971 movie about the life of Brian Piccolo, a football player with terminal cancer, and the Pro Football Hall of Famer, Gale Sayers, who helps Piccolo through his difficult struggle. In 2008, Brian married accomplished barrel racer, Jayme Miller. They have two children, and in the off-season they make Texas their home.

High School Career

At Splendora High School, Robison played defensive tackle his freshman year and linebacker his final three years. He registered 66 tackles for loss and 28 sacks in his final three seasons. As a senior, Brian earned Second Team All State Class 3A and First Team All District honors, registering 98 tackles and 20 stops behind the line of scrimmage, 8 sacks and 4 pass deflections. He was Honorable Mention All-State and First-Team All District selection as a junior after he posted 121 tackles, 14 stops for losses, 8 sacks, and 11 pass break-ups for a defense that only allowed 101 points in 2000.
