TIFFANY ON FERSEN
“The attributes of a dependable close defenseman are all found in Cooper.  He has the strength of an ox.  Cooper’s skill with the long stick in his hands is much more sophisticated than most as proven when he intercepts most balls thrown his direction.  Cooper comprehends our defensive schemes quickly and can adeptly explain them to others.  Thus, what does Cooper need in order to play?  A healthy back and louder volume applied to his thoughts.”
