For years, the joke has been that you haven't truly 'arrived' until you've been turned into a bobblehead. Look who just 'arrived'.

Rockford Lutheran High School grad, now stud running back for the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, is getting the kind of recognition saved for a select few.

James, who also racked up some impressive numbers at Illinois State after graduating from Rockford Lutheran High School, made a bunch of noise in his first NFL season. Seems ironic that the release is the same time as the 2021 NFL draft, given that James was undrafted in the 2020 NFL draft.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum was started by Rockford natives, who are ecstatic to highlight another Rockford native in bobblehead form.

“As fellow Rockford natives, Brad and I were excited to see James make an immediate impact in the NFL,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We’re excited to add this bobblehead to the growing collection featuring Rockford natives who are making the community proud. We think a lot of fans will be adding this bobblehead to their collection. We look forward to watching James this season and beyond, and hopefully someday he’ll have a championship bobblehead like Fred VanVleet.”

The James Robinson Bobble head is a limited edition release. Only 2,020 of these will be available and they will all be individually numbered. Don't sleep on getting one of these.
