In my thinking, and without seeming too cliché, I feel Coach Cobb’s most lasting influence was preparing his players for the days ahead in which they faced adversity, for if you played for him several years, you left galvanized for whatever you might encounter. It’s called discipline. You see, he turned boys into men. In my opinion, the greatest coaches were never “friends” of their players ... they were more than that. Just COACH.
Coach Cobb, many of us in this community salute and honor you. There will never be another quite like you ... and that’s sad.
