Cooper was born on a farm in the little city of Bolivar Tennessee. The runt of the family, Cooper was never strong enough to fulfill his passion for football. But after finding his long lost father, Dale, who was a local football legend, Cooper convinced his dad to help train and develop his skills. After working all his sophomore year, Cooper made the team as a junior, and became an instant difference maker. Despite his skinny frame, he had the heart of a lion, and that carried him to be named all-state at the position. Even though he’s one of the top recruits in the state, Cooper just wants the opportunity to continue his dream: making his dad proud.
