Randall Cobb to be inducted into Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame

Packers receiver broke SEC record for all-purpose yards in 2010


GREEN BAY – It was during Randall Cobb's three star-studded seasons at the University of Kentucky that the future Packers receiver first earned his reputation for versatility.

Now, Cobb will take his place among the school's all-time greats.

The school announced Monday that Cobb will be one of six inductees into the University of Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2017 during Hall of Fame Weekend, Sept. 22-23, in conjunction with the Wildcats' home game against Florida.

Utilized as a wide receiver, quarterback, punt returner and kickoff returner, Cobb is considered by many to be the most dynamic playmaker in UK football history.

A first-team All-American as a senior, Cobb set a Southeastern Conference single-season record for all-purpose yardage (2,396 yards) during his junior year in 2010. He also reset the school record for touchdowns (37).

Cobb, who scored five game-winning fourth-quarter touchdowns in his career, became the first member of his family to earn a college degree when he returned to UK last summer to finish his degree in community leadership.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2014, Cobb has caught 366 passes for 4,488 yards and 35 touchdowns in six seasons with the Packers. He's also added 335 rushing yards on 50 carries and another 2,701 yards on the Packers' return units with three returns for touchdowns.
