The running back ran for 1,816 yards and 32 touchdowns in the regular season. He is now up to 2,479 yards and 42 touchdowns and has helped lead the Wildcats back to the state title game.
Guyer meets Austin Westlake in the Class 6A Division II championship on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium.
Cobbs’ partner in the backfield, quarterback Eli Stowers, was named to the second team offense. The Texas A&M commit has thrown for 2,960 yards and 36 touchdowns against just four interceptions this year.
Stowers has also added 1,152 yards and 11 scores on the ground.
Guyer offensive lineman Gabe Blair was honorable mention. The Wildcats’ offense has averaged 517.1 yards and 46 points per game this season. A win against Westlake on Saturday would be Guyer’s third state championship this decade and the third since 2012.
