Robinson Knights

Published Oct. 10, 2005

Last year: 6-18 Class 3A, District 10

Coach: Rudy Granda, first year.

Assistants: Danny Oliver.

Classification: Class 3A, District 10.

Nickname: Knights.

Stadium: Robinson Field, 6311 S Lois Ave. Record: 6-18. Lost in district tournament.

Key Players: Tommy Phelps (first base-pitcher), Richie Copple (shortstop), Michael Lowry (second base), James Hunsinger (catcher), Mike Powrie (outfield), Joel Lundy (outfield), Ignacio Barrera (outfield).

Strengths: Tommy Phelps. Copple and Lowry also return for the Knights.

Weaknesses: Beyond Phelps, who has signed with the University of South Florida, the Knights have very little experience or depth.

Outlook: Granda was hired as the new Robinson coach just three weeks before the season started. It will be difficult for the Knights to jell right away.
