It is another new school year and another new football season for the Cooper Bulldog team. This year’s team has some big shoes to fill and with 20 seniors stepping up to replace the 14 that graduated, the task doesn’t seem quite as daunting.
It has begun – football season. The Cooper Bulldog coaching staff welcomed just over 50 players on the perfect 70-degree, sunshine-filled morning.
The Cooper Bulldogs start the 2014 season in District 6-3A, Division II picked first over their competitors the Edgewood Bulldogs, Lone Oak Buffaloes, Alba-Golden Panthers, Paris Chisum Mustangs and Grand Saline Indians in the Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine.
The Cooper Bulldogs have their sights set on the Area Championship Title. Their challenger is the 7-4 Henrietta Bearcats. The black and gold team is located near Wichita Falls and has been coached by Byron West for the past eight years. The Bearcats are led by their 6' 2", 165 lbs senior quarterback Conner Fletcher.
