A GRYPHON GLIMPSE - Arizona senior Travis Cobb

This is the first of a series of posts following past Gryphon athletes who are still performing on the college stage.

Today were are looking at former Rocky Mount baseball and football player Travis Cobb. He is a senior wide receiver/kick returner for the University of Arizona Wildcats football team.

The Wildcats have gotten out to a 2-0 start (huge wins over Toledo and the Citadel) and are ranked 24th in the lastest Associated Press poll.

Through two games, Cobb (6-1, 180) has caught five receptions for 45 yards, and run twice for 20 yards. He has returned three kickoffs for 79 yards, with a 39-yarder for his season high.

But he and his Wildcat teammates will face their biggest challenge so far this season when they entertain No. 11-ranked Iowa in Tuscon Saturday evening.
