Johnny Robinson isn’t in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and he probably should be. But until or unless the Hall’s senior committee nominates him, the former All-AFL safety waits … as do too many others … to have his name called.

But that’s OK with Robinson, and here’s why: Because he was … and is … more than an accomplished football player who led a great Kansas City Chiefs’ defense.

He’s someone who found his calling in something more than football, and it’s had a profound effect on people. It’s the Johnny Robinson Boys Home that he bought 38 years ago, and, in a fascinating profile of Robinson by the Kansas City Star’s Vahe Gregorian, Robinson explains why it … and not waiting on the Pro Football Hall of Fame … is what makes his life complete.
