Players selected are well-rounded individuals, not only are they distinguished athletes, but also have academic achievements and display exemplary moral characteristics.
“One moment that really defined him, was when we were at a basketball game, and he was up in the stands studying and doing his homework,” said Willie Williams, head football coach/athletic director for La Vega High School, “grades come first for him.”
Cobb, a top ranked Texas cornerback is committed to playing college football at Oklahoma University.
