Cobb, a 6-foot senior on a squad with few four-year players this season, has been focused on his team this season. The work toward leadership did not go unnoticed by a coach who knows what Mr. Football candidates look like.
“It’s a great award and great to be nominated. Any of the three that are nominated are good players. I’ve got 10, 11 maybe 12 kids up on the boards in this room, and I think Randall is as deserving as any athlete I’ve ever had that won it,” Alcoa head coach Gary Rankin said, pointing around at the banners commemorating past Mr. Football award winners. “He’s one of the best players in the state. You can break it down into 2A, and he won the 2A award, but he’s probably as good as any player in the state, I would think.
