The new Athletic Director at Texas A and M University-Commerce has already been on the job for six weeks. Carlton Cooper has been seen in many places, including this week's Lone Star Conference fall media day. Cooper says he has accomplished one of his main goals early on, to see as many people on and off campus as possible.

Cooper also took the opportunity while in Fort Worth to meet with Lions football alum Mario Ramirez, who played fullback from 1980 through 1983.

By the way, practices for the 2007 Lions football season starts Thursday.
