Plays safety with a linebacker’s disposition and size
We covered it when Mobley transferred from North Pulaski Middle to Caldwell. We told you he would be a big star. We weren’t sure it would come over the course of his freshman season, but hey, we knew it would come. This kid has every intangible you want to see for a young player slotted like he is used by the Tigers. This kid is a “no-doubt” future college player and a “sure-thing” future All-Stater.HB Lyon, KPGFootball Scouting Division
We have called him “Coop” since he came over to the Caldwell’s program fresh from having played for Kentucky’s premier middle school team. Check the record books and you will see that no one, at the middle school level, does it any better than the North Pulaski Maroons.
Man, that John Hines (Pulaski County HS HFC) has it easy with a feeder program like what G.J. Woolridge (North Pulaski HFC) provides. We’re kidding John, you are killing it in Kentucky’s 5A and deserve all the plaudits and praise that comes your way.
Anyhow, Cooper Mobley demonstrated just how impactful a big-time freshman could be on Friday nights this past season. Will Barnes (CCHS’s HFC) will tell you he was mighty glad to have old “Coop” Mobley.
Mobley, over the course of his freshman season, where he would play in 7-games (shortened b/c of injury), had 33-tackles, 1-TFL, 1-Sack, 1-FR, 1-INT, 96-IRNY’s (Interception Return Net Yards), and a “pick-six.” That is crazy good production for a player at his stage of development playing in the same district with “Mighty” Mayfield and Murray High.
Mobley is 6’1,” weighs 210-pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in a blistering 4.75. For those of you who doubt his 40-time, the kid is on the track and field team and clips the 100-meters at around 12-seconds flat. Track times are fully automated.
Mobley has a 31-inch vertical, bench presses 245, reps the middle school rep-weight of 185 on the bench press 10X’s, squats 405, deadlifts 500, and power cleans 225. He’s a specimen.
So, in terms of his recruitment what does all this mean. We would present it means he is among the strongest players, pound for pound, in the entire state of Kentucky in the ’26 graduating class, among the class’s best athletes, and among the class’s best football players at any position.
He is a bona fide, sure-thing, Saturday player in the future. Just at what level will depend on how his frame finishes.
As for rounding into an All-State caliber player…well, he’s already there!
