He improved from a 150 average score to a 175 average.

 

“I feel like I personally did a lot better this season because I improved more on my technique and how I feel like I need to bowl. I tool lessons with one of the major coaches in our league and that straightened me out and made me feel a lot better,” Robinson said.

 

After this next bowling season, Robinson will be the oldest in the league by about four years. However, he is planning to move up to adult leagues where he has a chance of going professional.

Anything that goes wrong, it is all about you. If you want to make improvements, you don’t need your team like in other sports, you just need you, by yourself, out on the lane.”
