Former Penn State quarterback Michael Robinson pauses at the podium during his speech at a memorial service for former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pa., Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012.

HONOLULU — Despite making his first trip to Hawaii, it's been a bittersweet and exhausting week for Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson.

Robinson arrived in the islands Tuesday only to fly out after the next day's Pro Bowl practice to speak at the memorial services of his college coach, Joe Paterno. He then returned to Honolulu on Friday night on Nike founder and CEO Phil Knight's jet.

"Besides my religion and my mom, coach Paterno is the reason I'm here," Robinson said after practice Saturday.

The legendary Penn State coach died Sunday of lung cancer at 85. His service Thursday drew some 12,000 people to the Penn State arena.
