Notre Dame wide receiver Corey Robinson has been elected the school’s student body president, reports Katie Galioto of the Observer. 

Robinson, a junior, and his vice president, Becca Blais, beat out two other tickets to win the election.

“It feels very humbling to be able to be announced the president and vice president of Notre Dame,” Robinson said. “It’s [definitely something] we’ve been dreaming about for a long time, and to be able to be here and lead the student body is just something I am very thankful for.”

Robinson is the son of NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson, who appeared on ESPN’s Mike & Mike on Thursday and talked about his son’s success. 

“I’m very proud of him,” David Robinson said. “The only surprising thing to me is how he finds the time to do everything he does....Last semester he wrote an album, he was performing music, he and a friend started up a non-profit that the NCAA Division I has now adopted as one of their non-profits.”

Robinson has played in 29 games since joining the Fighting Irish in 2013. He tallied 16 receptions for 200 yards and a touchdown last season.
