Jones, Cobbs headline WACC-Foothill honors

November 5, 2018

Bishop O'Dowd senior Austin Jones and San Leandro senior Jordan Cobbs took home top honors as the West Alameda County Conference's Foothill Division released its all-league awards for the 2018 football season.

Jones, a Stanford commit, has averaged over 10 yards per carry, running for 1,530 yards and 18 touchdowns through the Dragons' first-round playoff win over Hayward. He has added 22 catches for 316 yards, and was an easy selection for the WACC-Foothill Offensive Player of the Year award.

Meanwhile, Cobbs was named Defensive Player of the Year while spearheading the San Leandro defense from his linebacker position. After the Pirates' first-round playoff win over Dougherty Valley, Cobbs had racked up 94 tackles, including 10 tackles for a loss, and a pair of sacks. He had 14 tackles in last week's playoff victory. He has also been a primary offensive threat at tight end, with 30 catches for 653 yards and five touchdowns.
