Craig Robinson’s connection to Steve Mills

Craig Robinson: “Steve and I met on my recruiting trip to Princeton […] We met on that recruiting trip and struck up a friendship. I end up going to Princeton, so we are basically with each other every day for his last two years, his junior-senior year, my freshman-sophomore year. On the road, off the road. Socializing.

Once Steve graduated, his dad, Ollie Mills offered me a job as my first coaching job to coach at Percy Jackson Youth Center, which he ran. I came up for the summer before my senior year, was able to run the basketball part of the Percy Jackson Youth Center. I not only worked there, but I stayed with Steve at his house. Our relationship goes back doggone near 40 years now.”
