MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – It was a paralyzing blow. The devastating hit happened in an instant, but Timothy Robinson was told he’d feel the effects for a lifetime.

It’s been three years since the former Leflore High School football player suffered However, the former LeFlore High School football player has made great strides since suffering a sports injury that initially left him in a coma, and he’s making great strides toward his recovery.

His mother Evelyn McGhee said, “Seeing his progress everyday, there is something that he does a little bit different from one day to the next.”

Since suffering a severe injury, Timothy has been undergoing intense physical and occupational therapy.

McGhee added, “They’re working on getting him to strengthen his leg muscles and ankles so he can stand and walk. Trying to get him to think about what he was doing instead of freezing up, and we’re trying to build his confidence.”

Despite adversity, his spirit and enthusiasm haven’t changed.

McGhee said, “He hasn’t wanted to stop his activities he had normally. He had to modify some.”

As Timothy’s progress continues, he’s focusing a lot on speech therapy.

“He’s able to say a few words very clearly. I haven’t ever heard him say too many words. (He says words) like good morning, mama. This morning he said ‘my arm’. I got so excited. It’s the little things, like him standing for a few seconds. I get so excited; it changes my whole attitude helping him get motivated for what he wants to do,” added McGhee.

And he wants to do a lot. With his determination and perseverance, Timothy still plans to overcome his remaining obstacles.

We’re told faith has brought him this far, and will hopefully get him back to 100 percent.

Timothy has plans to enroll at Bishop State this fall.

Right now, he is currently working on a gospel album.
