Welcome to Coach Cobb's 2018-19 Physical Education/Health Class Page! Here you will find a little bit about the teacher, Mr. Will Cobb as well as relevant class information. First, a little bit about Coach Cobb and his educational/teaching background.

He moved to Union County in 2016 and began teaching 8th grade Science and Social Studies and coaching the Varsity Men's Tennis and Middle School Boys' Basketball teams. After a year off to complete his Master's degree in Positive Coaching from the University of Missouri - Columbia, Coach Cobb returned to Union Academy where he now teaches Physical Education/Health to grades 5-8.
