Robert H. Akins

Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Coach Akins was like a father to me, he taught me many things beyond sports. He believed in me and helped me excel in sports and life. He went above the call of duty to get me a scolarship to Kilgore which set me on a path to a successful future. He was a great asset to the community and all the students he mentored and he will always have a place in my heart.

I was sorry to hear of Coach Akins passing. He was a great coach and I enjoyed playing for him in football and baseball at Waltrip High School. He taught me many life lessons in addition to the finer points of each sport. Coach Akins was truly one of those coaches and men that you wanted to do your best for. He was an inspiration to meet and although I did not get to see him but a few times after leaving high school his teachings were always with me. He was a great person that will be missed by all that knew him. My deepest condolences to the Akins family.
