About Mr. Robbins Neighborhood:

Mr. Robbins Neighborhood (MRN) was established in 2014 by 12-year NFL veteran Fred Robbins and his wife, Tia. The organization’s foundation is rooted in the couple’s passion to provide guidance and mentorship to young athletes on their life journeys.

The harsh reality is 99.81 percent of high school athletes who participate in sports do not achieve a professional sports dream. Even for those who do play professionally, athletic careers are often short lived. The purpose of Mr. Robbins Neighborhood is to address this issue. MRN works to inform student athletes of the realities of chasing a professional sports career while arming them with the knowledge and skills to achieve success in non-sports arenas. The MRN program is rooted in the effort to broaden the landscape of what inspiration, dreams and goals can look like for the youth of Pensacola. The organization’s ultimate goal is to decrease the number of young athletes who are not prepared at the end of a high school, collegiate or professional career to transition to a new profession and realize success.
