His best game of his career came on the road at UTEP in 2010 when he made a career-best 10 receptions for 151 yards and a pair of scores, including a 43-yard, game-winning pass, and was named the C-USA Offensive Player of the Week.

Robottom was a three-year letterman at St. Charles Catholic where he saw time at wide receiver, cornerback, kickoff returner and punt returner for coach Frank Monica.
