Navajo’s Emmy Cobb – Western Oklahoma State College Student-Athlete Spotlight

Westerm State

Emmy Cobb is a freshman basketball player at Western Oklahoma State College. Cobb graduated from Navajo High School in 2018, where she also played softball and ran cross country in addition to basketball. After getting a taste of college ball, her impression was similar to most athletes who make that transition.

“College basketball is definitely a whole new level,” she said. “Everyone is faster and stronger.”

Looking back to her high school days, she shares that her coach from Navajo High was influential in her life then and now.

“My basketball coach, Coach Doss, had a lasting impact on me,” she said. “I remember him telling our team sophomore year how there is more to basketball than just basketball. It’s about the teammates, memories, having fun, and how we treat each other.”

When making the decision on where to attend college, Cobb said she was led to choose Western Oklahoma State because it had a friendly atmosphere and it is home to her. She is currently majoring in liberal arts and keeping her options open as she figures out what career path she would like to pursue.

Of all the things Cobb enjoys about attending Western Oklahoma State College, a few things stand out to her.

“What I love about Western is I feel like the teachers truly care about you and there are a lot of clubs and activities to get involved in,” she said. 

Thinking ahead to the future, Cobb’s plans after she graduates from WOSC include continuing her education at a four-year school to become a physical therapist or a teacher and coach.
