Former Mocs Player Eric Robertson Dies Suddenly

  • Thursday, March 10, 2022

Eric Robertson, former Mocs player who scored 12 points in the Southern Conference championship victory in 2016, passed away suddenly Monday evening while playing basketball. 

Robertson, 28, was a much loved basketball coach and Spanish teacher at Powell High School in Knoxville. He was also assistant varsity and junior varsity coach at Grace Christian Academy. 

He leaves behind a wife, Jerica, and their one-year-old son, Luca. Residents of the University of Tennessee Medical Center have set up a GoFundMe to provide financial support to his wife, Jerica, a current family medicine resident.

He was known by all for his deep-rooted faith and for his enthusiasm, whether in the classroom or on the basketball court.  His smile was said to light up a room and his co-workers said he had a special way to connect with his students. They said he wanted to be the best educator he could be.

Robertson attended Lee High School and led his team to three state victories and then played four seasons of college basketball. He also played for the British Basketball League, with the Leicester Riders, for two seasons, winning the league title both years.
