TIFFANY ON FERSEN
“Few of the defensemen in our program have as sophisticated a stick.  Cooper can make plays with timely knock downs and pickoffs.  He is also just about the strongest man in the program, with big numbers in the weight room.  Cooper’s impending emergence is dependent upon his continued work with his agility, raising the volume of his voice commands and shedding his reserved persona on the field.”
