Hurricane Wilma cut a destructive path across south Florida this week, making life difficult for many residents, including standout football player Wayne Cobham of Pembroke Pines Flanagan High School.
"Our power has been out the whole week," Cobham said. "Our game this week has been canceled. We still have two more games but I don't know what's going to happen now because of the hurricane."
Because Cobham's football game has been canceled, he said he and teammate Delvin Davis will be making an official visit to Central Michigan University this weekend.
"I'm really excited about the trip," Cobham said. "It's a big game Saturday for CMU and it's my first visit too."
For Cobham, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound safety, it will be his first visit to CMU. For his teammate and good friend Davis, a 6-0, 180-pound cornerback who committed to the Chippewas in July, it will be his second visit to Mount Pleasant.
"Delvin hasn't told me much about what to expect, he's leaving it as a surprise," Cobham said. "Friday we're going to tour campus and attend the team dinner. Saturday we'll be at the game."
Cobham said how he feels on the visit will be a key for him in making a decision. He also holds an offer from Western Michigan and is being heavily recruited by Bowling Green and Kansas State.
"I'm probably going to take other visits but I might make a decision following my visit to CMU," said Cobham, who's made three interceptions and blocked three punts this season for Flanagan. "I feel comfortable with Central Michigan because Delvin is going there and I like (CMU assistant) coach (Mike) Elston, who's recruiting me."
Cobham said Flanagan is currently 3-4 but its final two games are a question mark because of the hurricane. The future looks bright for Davis and Cobham though, who could very well be teammates once again next season at CMU.
"The visit will be real important," Cobham said.
