Cobb Named All-America

Dec. 10, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky junior Randall Cobb has been named second-team All-America as a wide receiver by Rivals.com.

Cobb leads the Southeastern Conference in pass receiving with 79 catches for 955 yards and seven touchdowns but his value far exceeds those contributions.  He also plays quarterback in the “WildCobb” formation and has rushed for 401 yards and five touchdowns and thrown three TD passes in that role. 

In addition, Cobb returns punts and kickoffs, including a punt return for a touchdown this season.  Cobb has 2,192 all-purpose yards, ranking second in the nation and breaking the Kentucky single-season record.  During the season he broke the UK career record for touchdowns with 37.

This is the first All-America honor for Cobb, who has been a first-team All-SEC choice the last two seasons.  He is also a candidate for the new Paul Hornung Award, which goes to the nation’s most versatile player.  He is the only player in the nation who ranks first or second on his team in rushing, passing and receiving.  He has put points on the board eight different ways this season – rushing, receiving and passing for touchdowns; returning a punt for a TD; throwing for a TD on a fake field goal; and notching two-point conversions by rushing, passing and receiving.
