Garry Cobb is a former USC standout-linebacker who returns to Football University for another year of top-flight instruction. Cobb had a very successful college career before being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 1979.  During his time at Southern California, Cobb collected two Rose Bowl victories in addition to a national championship.

Cobb’s NFL career ran for 11 seasons, spending most of his time with the Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cowboys.  His most productive years go back to Detroit, where he also served as team captain for three seasons.  Throughout his career, he played alongside some of the best pass rushers and linebackers in the game, including Reggie White and Jerome Brown. While on the Eagles as an outside linebacker in Buddy Ryan’s vaunted  4-6 Defense, Garry had his best day as a pro when he registered 4 sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in a single game against the Atlanta Falcons and was named the Sports Illustrated NFL Defensive Player Of The Week.

After his playing career, Cobb turned to the media side of football, where he also found himself to be successful. On top of running his own Philadelphia sports website, Cobb can be heard on his weekend football radio show. Even though his playing days are over, the former linebacker is still heavily involved in the game of football and is one of the best teachers in the game at the position.
