DEFENDER, ATLANTA UNITED FC
Atlanta United selected Miles Robinson with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, making him the first SuperDraft pick in club history. The 25-yearold had a killer year in 2021 including starting in 25 of 26 MLS appearances, and being named MLS Best XI for the second time and to the MLS All-Star team for the first. Here, he offers a tidbit of advice that got him to where he is and shares his top fuel-up snacks and go-to activities when he isn’t working.
“My advice for those who want to grow up and be successful is to stay true to yourself, never doubt yourself, work harder than hard and stay humble.”
“On a nice day, I like to bike around the BeltLine. I like to be outside and see other people in Atlanta enjoying their time in nature and all the murals around the city. I enjoy Piedmont Park and just vibing out and listening to music, too.”
“On gameday, I like to sleep in. I’ll make myself a nice breakfast, then I’ll take a shower and blast some hip-hop, and I’ll think about the game.”
