LUBBOCK JUST WHAT COOPER NEEDED
By mark rogers

And the Westerners were exactly what Cooper needed to gain some confidence and momentum at a key point in the season. Let's say the Cougs had played someone else, like a Trinity or an Allen, someone like that, and was now 1-3. Even a win against Coronado next week would have put them at 2-3 heading into district.
But now, with a win (and not just any win, but a huge, dominating, blow-out win), the Cougs not only have a chance to be 3-2 heading into league play, but they have some huge confidence as well.
I said this last night on KTXS Football Friday Night, but I have been utterly impressed with Cooper's special teams so far this year. If you can get one special teams score per game (which is pretty uncommon), it takes a great deal of pressure of your offense.
If you can just consistently make big returns and put your offense in good field position, THAT takes a big load off, too.
All this to say, Cooper is in a good position. They've worked some kinks out, put a full game together, start to finish, and are looking like they're ready to make a run at the district title.
