Coby Reynolds wants successful senior year

WARRENTON, Ga. -- Coby Reynolds is hoping his senior football season at Warren County High School is his best ever.

In one way, it already has been and the season hasn't even started.

For 18-year-old Coby recently was selected as one of the 16 best area prep football players by The Augusta Chronicle .

"It's an honor," said Coby. "I want to thank God, first. I also want to thank my teammates, coaches and others who believe in me so much. It really means a lot to me. It's real special."

The son of Patrick and Angela Reynolds, of Warrenton, Coby would love nothing better than this football season than to go out a winner.

"I want us to go all the way this season," said Coby during an interview with The McDuffie Mirror . "If we stay together, listen to our coaches and do what they say, then we can become state champions. I really believe that's possible."

Coby, an excellent student in the classroom who makes As and Bs, rushed for 1,300 yards last season as the Screaming Devils went 5-6 -- falling in the first-round of the Class A State Playoffs. Overall, Coby amassed 1,600 all-purpose yards last year. He also scored 13 rushing touchdowns last season.

This year, Coby plans to up those statistics.

"I want to do a lot better this year, since this is my last year playing high school football," said Coby.

So, it's no wonder, he's been heavily recruited by several big name colleges.

Coby has caught the eyes of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Washington State and others.

Right now, he remains uncommitted and says he won't likely make a decision where he will go to college until after his prep football season.

"It's a lot of pressure, but I don't want to decide on where I want to play ball now," said Coby. "I want to put it off for the time being and concentrate on just playing high school football."

When he does actually decide where he wants to attend college, Coby plans to study computer science.

"He's got a lot of talent and a very bright future," says Warren County football head coach Marleau Blount.

"He can do a lot of things simply because he has such tremendous speed."

Coby has been playing football since he was 5. He got introduced to the game through the Warrenton Recreation Department.

"I've always enjoyed playing sports, especially football," said Coby, who also plays basketball and runs track. "Football is a fun game."

In his spare time, Coby likes watching Sports Center, playing video games and hanging with friends.
