Duke University freshman Kelly Cobb, a 2011 Chugiak High graduate, is already making a name for herself at the NCAA Division I level.

Cobb, the 2011 Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year, has been named one of Soccer America’s top-10 influential freshman for 2011.

A 5-foot-9 forward from Peters Creek, Cobb scored 98 goals in just three seasons with the Mustangs before heading to Duke. She was a 2010 Parade All-American and is a member of the United States U-20 women’s national team.

Duke has played two games this season — both wins — and Cobb has been played in both. She has registered a team-high six shots for the Blue Devils, the nation’s No. 12-ranked team. Cobb ripped off four shots in Duke’s 2-0 win over No. 21 South Carolina. Through its first two games, Duke has outshot its opponents 35-9.
