Randall Cobb Makes A Trip Home


Just like I would imagine you like to keep tabs on your kids who have moved off to college, we here at KSR like to keep tabs on the son we never had Randall Cobb.  With the NFL lockout in full swing, it looks like Cobb won’t be suiting up in Green Bay for a little while, so he has taken the opportunity to swing back to his home town of Alcoa Tennessee and celebrate Independence Day.  While he was there, a few reporters caught up with him and he let them know what he’s been up to in the off season.

From Dave Link:

“Been everywhere,” Cobb said. “Been out in L.A. a little bit for a photo shoot for rookie cards and pictures I’ll be signing here, and training out there (in L.A.), and I went to Phoenix and trained with (Arizona Cardinals wide receiver) Larry Fitzgerald and a couple of the guys there, and I’ve been in Florida working out at IMG Academies and had a rookie symposium this past week.”

Cobb also talked about how important his hometown is, and how he wants to do as much as he can for them:

“I’m trying to give back any way I can, and I think just me being around them and influencing them any way I can is the most important thing, but also showing them how I got to where I’m at with the hard work and dedication I had on the field, the training and working out and keeping myself ready and prepared for whenever the season came.”

According to other reports, Cobb wants to set up an athletic scholarship fund sometime in the near future (likely once the lockout is settled and he wins his first super bowl MVP trophy next year.)

If ever there was a Wildcat you wish you could keep forever, it was Randall Cobb.

    To paraphrase S Palin: Cobb could say “I can see Neyland Stadium from my house”

    Keeping it positive, Randall is one of those “once-in-a-lifetime” guys. So solid, all-around. Great leader. I feel much the same way about Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson. We (UK fans) were very fortunate those guys came to play here.

    Randall conv is not a Wildcat. All the former basketball players talk up BBN. Conv hasn’t said anything aboutUK since he left. Guess we should just ” get ready for basketball season” right Randall?
