THIRTEENTH CIRCUIT JUDGE GREG GREEN coaches up the Robinson High School girl’s flag football team during a time out. “It’s very similar to the way I run my courtroom,” he said. “We always tell them, rules are important. If we follow the rules, we get rewarded.” The Tampa school’s program is a six-time state champion.

Being a stickler for the rules isn’t just a job requirement for 13th Judicial Circuit Judge Greg Green — it’s also a winning formula.

Judge Green says his emphasis on discipline, fair play, and attention to detail has helped make Tampa’s Robinson High School girl’s flag football team he coaches a six-time state champion — and more recently, the focus of a Nike media campaign.
