Cosey Scarebrook Leads Bob Jones Football And Track- Looks To Possibly Attend West Point

MADISON- A bright future awaits Bob Jones senior football player and track athlete Cosey Scarebrook. The decision is his as he entertains possible colleges to attend after leaving the confines of the Class 7A school next spring.

“I’m keeping my options as I would like to play both sports in college if I can,” said Scarebrook, who carries a 3.0 grade point average and would like to pursue a degree and become an athletic trainer.

Currently, West Point has offered him a ride where he can tackle both football and track. He has had visits to UT-Chattanooga, Jacksonville State and Louisville as recruiting became heavy after his recent junior track season for the Patriots. Besides tremendous football talents as a defensive back where he’s one of the leading tacklers on the team and has had two interceptions on the season, one of which was a pick-six versus Florence, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound speedster also faces the challenges of participating on the school’s track team where he participates in all of the jumping events, the 4×100 relay and the 200-yard sprint.

As a junior, he finished second in the state in the high jump where he lost in a jump-off after he posted a mark of 6-feet, 8-inches. He also posted great marks in the long jump (20-feet, 10-inches) and triple jump (41-feet, 7.5-inches).

His prowess in track began at a very young age as he watched his cousins run track, which led him to the desire to pursue the sport through his youth. His attempt to play football did not begin until his seventh grade year at Discovery Middle School. “I had to really work at my football skills, but I’m blessed with my natural athletic talents which has helped tremendously,” added Scarebrook, who started on the Bob Jones varsity halfway through his sophomore season. He’s never left his starting role.

“I feel I will make a big play during each game as I fly around the field to get to the ball,” said Scarebrook, who has been described by recruiting outlets as “long and athletic.” He added, “I’m what I call an average tackler, but can be a hard hitter when I want to be.”

His speed is second to none on the Patriots’ squad being clocked at 4.43 in the 40-yard sprint. He said track is his first love and will accept a school that presents him a full ride and the chance to play both sports. The son of Michael and Camica Parker said, “I don’t really want to go into the military, but I’m looking strongly at West Point. My parents and I talk about colleges and my choices and they have said they will respect my decision when I make it after the spring track season.”

An energetic personality, Scarebrook once taught himself how to play the trumpet using instructional booklets. He also overcame asthma as a child and participates in local charity work helping at food drives for the homeless. He says private prayers prior to each football game and track event and for good luck in track he wears a lucky pair of white Adidas socks. At one point he went on personal training treks that lasted three hours each, four times a week.

With his athletic talent and desire to succeed, no matter which higher education facility picks him up in 2022, it will receive a true athlete who will be ready to serve and give his best effort.
