Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame

During Hall of Fame weekend in September, the Liberty Flames Sports Network had a chance to catch up with former football standout quarterback Robby Justino.

Justino was one of five members inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame on Sept. 13. The five-member class, the fifth in the organization's history, also included Anthonia (Akpama) Oyedele (volleyball), Bailey Alston (men's basketball), Brenda Bonheim (volleyball and women's basketball coach/SWA) and Nancy (Davis) White (women's soccer).

During his four years with the Flames, Justino set the standard that all other Liberty quarterbacks will look to aspire to during their time in a Liberty football jersey.

Justino's career passing yards of 9,548 yards is more than 2,000 yards ahead of the next quarterback on the career list. He finished his career as Liberty's all-time leader in career completions (769), attempts (1,267), passing touchdowns (64), total offensive yards (8,806), most plays (1,469) and total touchdowns (66).

Justino, a native of Green Cove Spring, Fla., led the Flames to the program's first-ever victory over an FBS opponent, helping Liberty upset Eastern Michigan, 25-24, in Ypsilanti, Mich., on Oct. 21. 1989. The contest was his first career start, as he stepped in for an injured Paul Johnson to lead the Flames to the momentous victory.

During his sophomore (3,076 yards) and junior (3,176 yards) years, Justino posted two of the program's three 3,000 yard passing seasons. He also holds a program record with 26 career 250-yard games and 11 career 300-yard games.
