Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself getting accepted into medical school where I can pursue my dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
Cox is the most versatile player in the Austin/San Antonio area. He runs the point for his high school team, and with the Texas D1 Ambassadors he played the 2/3. Cox competes hard, defends extremely well, can shoot it and has a quick burst in his first step. He's an All State candidate at wide receiver on the gridiron too! Cox has impeccable character, I've known his family for years. He's a steal for Army, if he pulls the trigger. (Hard to turn down free medical school too).
