Colorado lost an important voice this week with the passing of Tom Robinson. In 2001, Robinson became the first Black administrator hired by the Colorado High School Activities Association. Robinson worked as a teacher, coach and referee. He was even the replay official for the 2017 NCAA college football national championship game. The husband of Cleo Parker Robinson, Tom also helped found the iconic Denver dance company. Rashaan Davis is an assistant commissioner with CHSAA who worked with Robinson for years.
