We are deeply saddened to report that Robby Wilson, NSR Director of Scouting passed away this morning around 3:30 AM after a hard-fought battle with COVID-19.
Robby began his fight before Christmas and his wife Leslie and daughter Parker remained by his side until the end.
His passion for helping softball players reach their dreams and teaching them how to be better human beings is something the softball community will forever miss. He was truly a blessing to so many people and a great friend.
Robby was a regular guest on Here’s The Deal offering words of wisdom to recruits all over the country. Here are a few of the memorable moments we shared on the show.
“We all mourn the loss of a great friend today. We lost one of the best scouts to ever wear an NSR shirt. Robby has touched and changed so many lives. He has made the dreams of so many girls wanting to play college softball come true. He will be remembered by our scouts as a leader, an innovator and most importantly a friend.”
- Rusty Rigney, NSR CEO
