CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Unlike some football players going to prison these days, Michael Cobb's time Tuesday in Franklin County (Pa.) Jail was an attempt to get others out. Cobb, a first-round draft choice of the Cincinnati Bengals in 1977, addressed Franklin County inmates about their choices and legacies. He asked those gathered how they want to be remembered. "Somebody who shared Christ with others," one man said. "Somebody who helped," another said. "If you can think positive thoughts, you can live positive," Cobb said.
