Cason is an Altonized Community Federal Credit Union Male Athlete of the Month.

The Piasa Birds' head boys basketball coach Jason Darr believes Cason has unbelievable potential for the future and is glad to see the freshman logging so much varsity time on the court in the 2023-2024 campaign.

"Cason doesn't play like a freshman," Coach Darr said. "He is super aggressive and you don't see that a lot out of kid that age. I coached all three of his brothers. There has been a Robinson in the boys' basketball program every year for close to the last 14 years. They are a good family and were all great kids and very coachable."

Cason has a great eye for basketball and will likely sink many three-pointers for the Piasa Birds as his career continues, Coach Darr said.

Congrats again to Cason Robinson on his recognition as an Altonized Community Federal Credit Union Male Athlete of the Month honor.
