Ray senior point guard Robbie Hilliard has signed his national letter of intent to play basketball at St. Edward’s University next season.

Hilliard acceptance of the scholarship continues an athletic legacy at the school started by his father, Bob Hilliard, who was a four-year tennis letterman at St. Edward’s from 1976-80.

Robbie Hilliard is a three-year varsity letterman with the Texans, and an academic all-district and a team captain each of the last two seasons. He also is a National Honor Society member at Ray. He’s following in the footsteps of his father, who graduated Summa Cum Laude from St. Edward’s.

“I applied to St. Edward’s because I felt like I would be proud to call it home for the next four years,” Robbie Hilliard said. “It has a positive vibrancy to it. It was an honor to meet the players and coaching staff and I believe St. Ed’s is the best place for me to continue my academic and athletic career.”
