AdaptFocusMy name is DeQuel Robinson, Im a native of Mobile, AL and I currently work as a Program Supervisor for Mobile Parks & Recreation, a Track & Field Coach/Personal Trainer, and Doctoral student. Im also a former Pro Wheelchair Basketball Athlete. Ive lived with an Ambulatory (Physical) Disability since the Fall of 2008. Prior to that date, I was a star athlete in Football & Track & Field. Sports has always been my passion and love since the age of 5. Who would have thought that the two sports I love so dearly would be taken away from me at the young age of 21.In the Fall of 2008, October 18th, my life changed forever when I was shot 7 times and left for dead. God truly had His hands on me because He covered me while being on the ground an hour in a half and gave me the strength to dial 911. The multiple gun shots left me partially paralyzed from the waist down. That didnt stop me from developing a focus mindset and thriving ahead, tapping into my purpose. After being confined to a wheelchair, I was able to create a path for myself through sports and fitness. I became involved in wheelchair activities and earned a wheelchair basketball scholarship to The University of Alabama. During my tenure at the University of Alabama, I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees and became a 2-Time Intercollegiate National Champion. Upon completing my masters degree, I furthered my career in wheelchair basketball by accepting an offer to play professionally in France. After completing my time overseas, I moved back to the great city of Mobile, Alabama to fulfill my purpose by helping others like myself and by creating my Nonprofit Organization, AdaptFocus. AdaptFocus is a Nonprofit Organization whose mission is:Help and empower those with Ambulatory (Physical) Disabilities through Athletics, Fitness and Recreational Programs within the community, while also providing mentorship to those faced with sudden physical challenges. Creating a pathway for those with physical disabilities, who are looking to further their goals & dreams through sports and activities. Removing barriers so that everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy any and all activities to live a more active independent lifestyle.
