U.S. U-20 WNT forward Kelly Cobb is making history as the first player from the state of Alaska to make a U.S. Women's World Cup Team. The Duke striker scored 11 goals with nine assists during a banner freshman year last season and at 5-foot-9 with speed and strength is a handful for any defense.
Turns out that Cobb is also quite the outdoorswoman. She loves to go fishing with her family and once caught a 20-pound salmon and a 30-pound halibut (with her dad's help).
Below, she tries to reel in a monster carp in Hiroshima, Japan, but that might even be too much fish for this Alaskan.
We'll have a video up soon on ussoccer.com about this Alaskan women's soccer pioneer.
The rumor that Cobb used teammate Molly Pathman as bait is just not true
