(BEDFORD) - Bedford's Sam Cobb recently secured his degree in Economics from the University of Evansville.
The former Bedford North Lawrence standout golfer recently was awarded the Missouri Valley Conference Presidents Council Academic Excellence Award.
The purpose of the award is to recognize the elite academic achievements of graduating senior student-athletes. In order to be recognized, the student-athlete must meet three requirements including: a minimum GPA of 3.8, participation in athletics for at least two years (not necessarily a letterwinner) and must be within 18 hours of graduation at the time the award is received.
Cobb, who played four years of golf for the Purple Aces and had a low round of 70 last season, maintained a 3.84 grade-point average during that span to earn the prestigious honor.
