We met up with Austin Cobb, Ada High School senior, in study hall. He was at his usual table with Micah Roberson, Brenden Szippl and Kellen Decker.

What classes are you taking this semester?
English, Ceramics, Sociology, Algebra II, French I, Communications and Yearbook.

Do you play on any sport teams?
Yes, basketball and baseball. I pitch and play shortstop in baseball.

Tell me about your best-ever baseball game.
It was last summer on the Lima American Legion team. I was a pitching relief in the fourth inning and I took the game in 11 or 12 innings. It was against Troy.
