LIKE a phoenix rising from the ashes, Brian Robinson overcame all odds to make it to the NFL.
The Washington Commanders rookie running back had to wait until Week 5 to make his NFL debut after he was shot twice in an attempted carjacking in August.
Robinson started his career Sunday, carrying nine times for 22 yards as the Commanders lost 21-17 to the Tennessee Titans.
But despite this loss, Robinson’s arrival at FedEx Field will be remembered for some time to come thanks to social media.
This comes after a fan edited this now viral footage by Robinson running onto the field as the crowd cheers and Many Men by 50 Cent blares in the background.
Given the lyrics, there was no need to read between the lines for this moment: “Many men wish me dead. Blood in my eyes and I can’t see. I try to be what I’m meant to be. And he’s trying to take my life.”
On Monday morning, 50 Cent himself shared this footage on his Instagram in a post with the caption: “This isn’t something that ends, [eyes emoji] When God has bigger plans, it’s just a bump. @b.robinson_4 back in action soon [bicep emoji]”
One fan commented, “Nah, this could go down as one of the coldest strikes ever.”
Another said: “This is probably the hardest thing I’ve seen in my life. I hope this guy leads the league one day.”
While another took the opportunity to attack the commanders:
“The only W Washington had today. That’s great.”
But even without the music, Robinson’s return to action was a memorable feel-good moment, which he himself described after the game as “great” and “remarkable”.
And for Robinson and company, the stage will be even bigger with a Thursday night prime-time game against the Chicago Bears in just a few days.
