Trey Cobb Signs With Cowboys

Trey Cobb was dressed in a suit Wednesday morning when he entered the athletic building at Broken Arrow (Okla.) High School. For Cobb, it was the required attire because it was professional day for DECA students. He would have been more comfortable in jeans and a sweatshirt, not to mention those dress shoes.

"It's only the second time I've worn these," Cobb said, pointing to the black shoes, which showed little wear.

It just happened to be the day the Broken Arrow High School senior signed his baseball letter of intent with Oklahoma State University.

The right-handed pitcher donned a Cowboy ball cap and was surrounded by family for the occasion when he sat down and signed the official paper work.

"I am happy and excited," Cobb said. "I am glad this (recruiting) is over. Now, I can concentrate on my senior year and help us get that state title back."

He had verbally committed to LSU a year ago. When OSU hired Josh Holliday as its new coach and Rob Walton as the Cowboy pitching coach, Cobb switched to Stillwater.

Cobb will be the ace next spring for Broken Arrow head coach Shannon Dobson's Tigers, who were the Class 6A runners up in 2012, and state champions in 2011 when Cobb was a sophomore.

Cobb was 10-2 last spring with a 1.29 earned run average. He registered 82 strikeouts and only 12 walks over 76 innings. In a 2-0 victory against Tulsa Memorial, Cobb had a no-hitter and one pitch from a perfect game.

His grandfather, Frank Linzy, was part of Cobb's signing party. Linzy pitched in the major leagues in the late 1960s and early 1970s with stops in St. Louis and San Francisco.

"He (Cobb) has better stuff than I ever had," said Linzy, a lifelong Porter resident. "He's got good velocity and a good breaking ball with good control. And, he never quits."
