Bijan Robinson Parents

When Bijan's mother LaMore, got pregnant during her college year, the family decided that she would move back home to Arizona to live with her family and raise Bijan there so she could finish school and keep her scholarship.
At that time, his grandpa Cleo stepped in as a father figure who fueled his love for football. When Saul got married, Bijan had the option to move into a new home with his mom, stepfather, and step-siblings, but he decided to stay with his grandparents.
