So you want to put more pressure on the opposing QB ? How about a 6'3" 220 LB outside linebacker with 4.58 speed who just set Missouri state sack records his junior season. Enter Glendale High School standout Cooper Roy. In 12 games last year he sacked the QB 26 times ! Oh and by the way he also set the single game record with nine. Still being way under recruited and under ranked in my opinion his stock should rise. Another player from the Springfield area that should be getting more attention but one that could help any program. This is a young man with the size, speed, and motor you want. He's coachable and will thrive at the next level both on and off the field. Cooper is another one of those recruits Mizzou needs to stay home.
Let's get to know Cooper.
1 As a Junior you set the state season and single game sack records, what are your goals for your senior season ?
Cooper My goals for next season would be to hopefully get just as many sacks if not more. But I'm also looking to be more versatile and disruptive in the backfield.
2 What are your strengths to your game and what are you trying to improve on ?
Cooper I feel as though my strengths are my quickness of the ball and my motor . Next year I'm looking to be a bit more powerful, be able to be a big time playmaker in different ways.
3 Do you pattern your game after anyone ?
Cooper I wouldn't say I pattern my game after anyone, but I do look up to players like J.J. Watt and Clay Matthews.
4 Have you heard from Mizzou ?
Cooper Yes, I have heard from Coach Heinz and Coach Link. I am going to be there for camp on June 6th.
5 Are any programs standing out in your recruitment ?
Cooper A few programs like Bowling Green and Army but this summer will be big for me. I have been talking to Arkansas and Nebraska for quite a while now.
6 Do you know what you want to study in college yet ?
Cooper I would like to major in business.
7 Favorite meal ?
Cooper My favorite meal would probably have to be steak and potatoes.
8 All time best movie ?
Cooper I really enjoy the Godzilla movies.
9 The one thing you would like to see or do ?
Cooper I would love to go to Hawaii.
10 Tell me one thing not many people know about you.
Cooper I am one of the hardest workers in the country.
I'm very happy to hear Cooper will be in Columbia in June and I hope that ends with an offer and a commitment . The young man was born to wear black and gold.
