UA Post-Game: Amari Cooper
"It felt great," Amari Cooper said of his Under Armour game performance. "It's a nice ending to my high school career. This was my last high school game. It's something I will always remember.
"It was great playing on this big stage. It's a preview before I go to Alabama. All Alabama games are on TV. I am excited about the way I played. I am happy about it."
Cooper had a 75-yard touchdown reception from Jameis Winston in the first quarter. He added a 93-yard punt return touchdown in the fourth.
"It was a good play," Cooper said of the touchdown reception. "I stumbled a little bit, but I will take it. After I caught the ball I had it in my mind I was going to score on that play.
"I didn't know the punt return was that long. When I caught it I saw there were 10 people in front of me. I just saw a crease and took it."
Alabama fans had a lot to cheer about Thursday night with the performance on the field by future Tide players and two new commitments.
"It was a great night for Alabama," Cooper said. "My favorite play was when Eddie Williams hit Duke Johnson on the sideline. It got me hyped up. I said I am glad he is going to Alabama with us. We have a real strong class."
Cooper enrolls at the Capstone next week where he will get a jumpstart to his college career.
"I think I need to go up there and show them what I can do," Cooper said. "I feel like I have the skills to play early."
