WELCH, TX (KCBD) - After 10 years of being the Head Football Coach/AD at Dawson, Ed Robison has left to be the running backs coach at Class 5A Lubbock Cooper.
Robison did wonderful things in Welch in his 10 years with the Dragons, going 64-45, making the playoffs seven times, including going 9-2 in 2009 and 11-1 in 2013.
Prior to his arrival, Dawson hadn't been in the pigskin playoffs since the 80's.
This past season, with only 20 students in the high school at Dawson, Coach Robison was still able to field a young JV team that finished the season playing their varsity district schedule, going 2-7.
As the boys basketball coach this past season, Coach Robison saw there were only five boys and four healthy girls, so he helped make the decision for Dawson to bring the boys and girls basketball teams together to play as a co-ed squad. He knew it was the best decision to allow the kids to keep playing basketball.
Robison joins Max Kattwinkel's staff and is currently the second 6-man head football coach on the Lubbock Cooper's football staff.
Former Meadow coach Kent Allison has been at Lubbock Cooper the last five seasons and he is the Pirates defensive ends coach. When he joined Lubbock Cooper, they were Class 3A.
Besides Dawson, Robison has also coached at Shallowater, Smyer and Aspermont.
