Tennessee baseball player Craig Cobb has been selected as UT’s CAREacter Star Athlete of the Week. The CAREacter Program is based on a five-point star system that includes the basic traits of a true champion, whether on or off the field. Those traits are attitude, character, grades, community service and performance.
“Since Craig has been here at Tennessee, he’s been a solid individual for our program,” UT assistant baseball coach Larry Simcox said. “He has excelled not only on the field, but also in the classroom and in the community as well.”
A senior pitcher from Knoxville, Tenn., who graduated from Farragut High School, Cobb owns the Tennessee school record for appearances (81) while ranking second in games started (44), wins (25) and innings pitched (367.0). His 208 career strikeouts are good enough for seventh place on UT’s all-time list. He owns a 6-4 record on the mound this season.
Cobb earned SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition in 2004, 2005 and 2006 and continues to be one of the top academic achievers on the baseball team. This semester, he is participating in the VOLScholar Program for academics and citizenship-building and wears the VOLScholar logo on his uniform as the holder of a 3.0 or better grade-point average.
Cobb joins junior outfielder Julio Borbon, pitcher Ryne Simpson and outfielder Jarred Frazier as the UT baseball team’s CAREacter Star honorees this season.
