Huskies Add Dynamic Defender Achille Robin for 2021
SEATTLE -- The University of Washington men's soccer team program and head coach Jamie Clark announced the addition of Achille Robin, a talented graduate transfer from Bowling Green. Robin will join the team for the 2021 season with one year of eligibility remaining.
Achille Robin (pronounced a-SHEEL) joins the Huskies after three years at Bowling Green. Over the course of his career, Robin appeared in 48 games, making 45 starts on defense for the Falcons. Robin has displayed the ability to create plays on the attacking end of the pitch as well, totaling 7 goals and five assists in his career, while converting all three of the penalty kicks he took.
Serving a team captain in 2020, Robin played every second of every match for the second straight season. He was also named one of the 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award. For the second straight season, Robin was named to the All-MAC First Team and the USC All-North Region Second Team. He had the defining moment of the season for Bowling Green, as he put home a golden-goal overtime penalty kick against Northern Illinois, leading the Falcons to their first MAC title since 1996.
In 2019, Robin was the only player on Bowling Green to play every second of every match. He was second on the team with 14 points, scoring 5 goals and tallying four assists. Robin was named All-MAC First Team, selected to the MAC's All-Tournament Team and named to the United Soccer Coaches All-Region Second Team. Top Drawer Soccer ranked him No. 4 on its list of top players in the MAC.
A late arrival to Bowling Green in 2018, Robin walked into the team's stadium while their first scrimmage was underway. He would acclimate himself quickly, going on to play in 14 games with 11 starts in the season. Robin would score a goal and add an assist to give him three points in his debut campaign
Robin adds even more talent and depth to a dynamic Husky back line that includes returning All-American and Pac-12 Defender of the Year Charlie Ostrem as well as All-Pac-12 Second Team honorees Kendall Burks and Ryan Sailor.
