Abilene, Texas – November 1, 2010 – Dave Campbell’s Texas Football is proud to announce that the Abilene Cooper High School Cougars football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 5A.

The Cougars were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.

“Abilene Cooper outscored rival Abilene 21-0 in the second half to emerge with a 45-28 win and clinch at least a share of the District 3-5A title. Cooper also kept its unbeaten record intact at 9-0 overall, 4-0 in district, and the Cougars can clinch the district title with a win this week against Midland,” said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell's Texas Football. “Cooper QB Clayton Nicholas was the hero of the game, passing for 349 yards and two touchdowns, and he also ran for a score. RB Alford Cooper added 129 rushing yards and three TDs.”

The award will be presented to the team at a time to be determined later this week by a representative of the U.S. Army.

"The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Abilene Cooper High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers. Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally and physically strong," said CPT Adam Drybread. "We expect to see some of these young men competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the college level, or maybe even professionally in the future."
