|Robert Levinson |
Robert Levinson began coaching interscholastic sports in 1938 at Bellarmine High School as the head basketball and assistant football coach. In 1945 Levinson moved to Stadium High School, his alma mater, and served as the assistant coach before being named the head football and track coach in 1947.
As the head football coach, Levinson won eight league championships. His high school football coaching career was highlighted by defeating No.1 ranked Lincoln in the 1955 Thanksgiving Day game, the 1965 undefeated 9-0 season and Stadium’s legendary 7-0 upset of Mt. Tahoma in 1967. This game has been characterized as one of the greatest upsets in Tacoma prep history.
Levinson’s track teams won the state championship in 1954 and the team placed 4th in 1948, 2nd in 1957, 4th in 1959 and 3rd in 1963. From 1954-57 the Stadium Track & Field team had a record of 31-2 and won three West Central District Championships.
