Mike Barber profiles UVA’s starting linebacker Malcolm Cook:

“That was the scary part in Mosby, waking up and knowing the fact that you don’t know if you’re going to live or die this day,” Cook said matter-of-factly, without seeming the least bit detached. “I’ve got nieces and nephews running around out there still to this day. You’re just scared to get that phone call that a stray bullet hit one of them or something like that has happened.”

Yet here is Cook today, now 23, a U.Va. graduate working toward his master’s degree in counseling, and a budding star linebacker on the school’s football team.

Cook made it out of Mosby Court, but he’s never really left.
