#23 ROBBIE HEATHERINGTON
Guard, 6-0, 165 lbs., Freshman
McKeesport, Pa. / Serra Catholic HS
Profile: Heatherington comes to Point Park after a standout career at Serra Catholic that included plenty of accolades. He follows his older brother T.J. Heatherington in choosing Point Park. The elder Heatherington led the Pioneers in scoring last year. Robbie Heatherington was a two-time all-state selection at Serra, and he capped off his career by averaging 24 points per game as a senior. A talented guard with a good shooting stroke, Heatherington figures to contribute in the Point Park backcourt as a freshman. His adjustment to the college game will be a key factor as he is called upon early in his career, and he has the potential to develop into a good player over the next four years.
High school: He scored over 1,000 points for his career in leading the Eagles to three section championships in a row. Led by the Heatherington brothers, Serra Catholic won WPIAL and PIAA Class A championships during the 2007-08 season. The Eagles were runners-up in the WPIAL and the PIAA during Robbie Heatherington’s junior season of 2008-09. Heatherington was the McKeesport Daily News Player of the Year last season. He was also tabbed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Fab 5 team and the Tribune-Review Terrific 10. He earned three letters in basketball and four in football. He was the quarterback for Serra’s football team after playing wide receiver his first three years. He went under center after his older brother vacated the starting quarterback position. Robbie threw for over 1,000 yards in 2009. In addition to their PIAA basketball title in 2007-08, the Heatherington brothers also won the state football title that year.
