A FOOTBALL LIFE
His love of football began at an early age, and has continually fueled his growth as an athlete and person, at every stage of his career. Robert entered the National Football League as a fourth-round draft pick in 2012 and has since enjoyed success as running back with such teams as the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys and, most recently, the Indianapolis Colts.
Robert was a ﬁrst-team all-league running back at Fremont, California’s Irvington High School his senior season, during which he ran for more than 1,200 yards on 143 carries, scored 14 touchdowns and caught nine passes for 103 yards. That same year, Robert also hauled in six interceptions as an all-league defensive back for the Vikings, which earned him the league’s Defensive Player of the Year award.
Robert’s athletic success also extended beyond the gridiron, as he was a two-year letterman in both track & ﬁeld and basketball.
College Football Standout
Robert joined the Utah State University Aggies in 2007, and it wasn’t long before he set himself apart as one of the most impactful players on the squad and the Mountain West Conference.
As redshirt sophomore with the Aggies, Robert gained nearly 1,300 yards, over 400 receiving yards and 18 TDs, including a school record-setting 96-yard score against arch-rival Utah. Though he was sidelined by a knee injury in 2010, Turbin’s comeback the next year was nothing short of spectacular. In 2011, Turbin rushed for more than 1,500 yards, earning himself the 10th overall ranking among all NCAA Division I players. That same year, he set a Utah State record for rushing touchdowns in a single season and tied for 25th in NCAA Division I rankings with 6.1 yards per carry.
Robert was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 and captured his ﬁ rst Super Bowl Championship ring with the team after the 2014-15 season. He has since played with Cleveland, Dallas and Indianapolis. As running back with the Colts, Turbin scored a career-high seven rushing TDs in 2016.
To date, Turbin has played seven seasons in the NFL. He is now pursuing opportunities with a new club.
