    We all have experiences in college that help mold who we are as people. There are rare occasions, though, which define such an important part of our lives that we want to hold onto them for as long as we can.

    That’s exactly the mindset Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson has.

    Before he was catching touchdowns from Blake Bortles down in sunny Florida, Robinson was a big-time target in the Penn State passing game.

    And there was one play against Michigan back in 2013 that defined who Robinson was as a Nittany Lion. With 35 seconds left on the clock, trailing the No. 18-ranked Wolverines, 34-27, then-freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg heaved the ball 36 yards to Robinson, who made a leaping grab in between three Michigan defenders.

    Robinson completed the catch at the 1-yard line, Hackenberg punched it in, and Penn State ended up winning, 43-40, in overtime.

    Obviously, that’s a memory to be cherished, and Robinson decided to ink it onto his body.
