Earlier this year, Robert produced an exhaustive examination of Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow Jr.’s questionable off-field behavior that went beyond charges made public during a June trial in which he was found guilty of raping a 58-year-old woman.
Robert worked for USA Today between 2010 and 2013 as a general assignment reporter, focusing on the NFL and social media and sports. He was part of the newspaper’s team that covered the 2012 Summer Olympics and he has also covered numerous Super Bowls.
Robert, who has been based in Denver, is a 2010 graduate of the University of Maryland. He grew up in Silver Spring. Among his many interests is a passion for teaching young students the craft of journalism. He was the student newspaper adviser at a Denver high school, where he taught news gathering and news writing and led a class in the production of a monthly student newspaper.
