Nobody loved the Gators more than ‘OD’.

 

On Saturday morning, the South Terrebonne Gators Football FB page shared the following message:
It is with heavy hearts we share with you the passing of Odarion “OD” Robinson yesterday afternoon. OD had been a manager for the football, basketball, and track & field teams the past couple years.

 

The Times was lucky enough to visit with “OD” in 2019 for a little story. Below is an excerpt from that piece:



 

Robinson, known as “OD” around South Terrebonne High School was a special education student and graduate. While a student, he was a manager for several sports. He’s an unsung hero who has helped the school’s athletic programs in a huge way over the past several years.

 

Since graduating in 2016, he’s decided to stay around, lending a hand in literally any way he can — serving water, helping fix equipment or maybe even just lending a couple words of encouragement to players who need it most.

 

Athletes and coaches at the school say he’s a big help. But to OD, his role is no big deal. He just loves the Gators and would do anything he can to help see them prosper.



 

“I love the Gators,” he said. “I want to be a Gator forever.”
