Thought you might enjoy this answer former UK star and current Green Bay receiver Randall Cobb gave Thursday when asked why finishing his education and getting a degree was important to him:
Question: What made you want to finish your education at Kentucky that has you taking summer school classes?
Cobb: “That was a goal I set for myself to graduate. Regardless of when it is, I am going to graduate. It may be two years from now, maybe six years from now, but I am going to get it done at some point. That is something that important to me. Nobody in my immediate family has a college degree, so to have that is important and is something I want to get.
“Before I even thought about the NFL, that was a goal I set for myself to graduate at Kentucky. Nobody in my family has done it so I wanted to do it. I promised my mom I would do that. I told her that but I also told myself that. Of course, my mom is going to be down my neck about it, but she wanted me to make the best decision for me and she will follow me. But she knows how important education is and reminds me of that.”
