Make that three

Khiry Cooper (WR, Shreveport, LA) - One of the players who is making the most noise in the Louisiana circuit comes from the 6' 2", 175 Calvary Baptist standout.

"I am doing pretty good this year," added a very humble Khiry Cooper. "I have 30 catches for 560 yards and 12 TD's through six games."

And what about Calvary Baptist?

"We are 6-0 right now. We are ranked #1 in Class 2A and #3 overall in the state."

What improvements has Cooper seen in his game?

"In the offseason I put on 10 to 15 pounds. I have gotten faster too. My excelleration is a lot better than it was last year. Overall, I have just become a better overall player."

Khiry's performances have not gone unnoticed.

"I have been Player of the Week twice by the Shreveport Times, and I was Athlete of the Week by Channel 3 News. They even came by our practice on Monday to interview me. That was pretty exciting."

Which colleges have taken notice?

"LSU offered me three weeks ago when we played Rayville. They are the only school that I have picked up an offer from lately. I talk to Florida a lot. Coach Gonzalus said they are about to offer me real soon. I probably talk to LSU and Florida the most."

Anymore schools calling?

"Arkansas, Nebraska, Tulsa, and La Tech. Ole Miss just started calling me recently, and Texarkansas community college called for baseball. They want me to come play ball over there for a year and see where I go in the (baseball) draft from there. That is about it."

Cooper has scheduled his first official visit.

"I am going to Florida on November 24th when they play Florida State. I can't wait for that visit. It is going to be very exciting."

Anybody else standing out?

"Definitely Oklahoma. Oklahoma especially. They are really the only one that is new, but I am loving Oklahoma right now. They have really picked it up. They are sending me a bunch of letters, and I think my coach just sent them a tape. I think something could happen with them real soon."
