As a senior, Cobb is focused on the here and now. He wants to win a state championship for Jones after the Fightin’ Tigers fell short of the title last season. Jones lost to Jesuit High School in the playoffs in 2020.

Cobb says it’s the least he can do for a program he calls amazing.

“It’s a privilege to wear Orange and Green, especially playing for a coach like Coach [Elijah Williams] and how he carries the program,” Cobb said. “He’s good; he shows us the ropes. He shows us what it takes to get to college and what it takes to get to the pros. It’s good to have him.”
