High School: Princeton
Parents: Andy Garner and Gina Hill
Height, Weight: 6-foot-2, 175 pounds
Position: Linebacker or Defensive Back
Also Considered: Centre College (Danville, Ky.)
Why Pembroke? “I took a visit to Centre and it’s an 8 ½ hour drive from home but I really liked it. Then I visited Pembroke and I had the same feeling about the place, but it’s a lot closer to home. It’s an opportunity to play football and get a world-class education.”
Notable: Cody projects as either a weakside linebacker or a nickel back for the Braves. He played mostly at inside backer on defense for Princeton in addition to running back on offense. “It’s an exciting opportunity,” he said. “I’ll play wherever they think I can help them on the field.” … He said it’s hard to pick out any one moment over the other from playing at Princeton, but his entire senior season, being part of the first 12-win team in school history, is something he’ll always cherish. … Cody wants to become a more vocal leader on the field in college.
