“This is a village. We take care of each other and support each other,” said Football Program Director Coach Eric DeHaven.

Cheerleaders brought the energy, pumping up the crowd and leading them in a Cooper cheer.

“It’s great to see our students back on campus for another exciting athletic season,” said John Hoye, Director of Athletics.

Cooper’s Volleyball team will play a home game against Frassati Catholic School on Tuesday, August 15. “That’s your homework assignment,” Hoye told the crowd. “Pack the stands!”
