Cowboy Stadium! Regional Playoffs....

Last Thursday while the turkey was roasting and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was on T.V., Coach and the Cooper football team were practicing! In the world of high school football it is considered an honor to still be playing football at Thanksgiving.

So you can imagine how exciting it was for this 2010 team to find themselves Distric and Area Champs two years in a roll and headed to the metroplex to play Denton Guyer, in the

....Dallas Cowboy Stadium! The complex is simply amazing. We were awe-struck!

It was truly an honor.

Unfortunately, it was not our day. And though our season has come to an end, there is so much to celebrate.!

A big congratulations to the Abilene Cooper Cougars. It was an honor to watch you play football. You invested your time and effort wisely. The payoff will be a wealth of memories, relationships and accomplishments that will last a lifetime. Thanks for getting our attention! Thanks for giving a lot of Cooper fans hope and a snoozing community a wake up call! You inspired us. Made us believe again. You changed the atmosphere.

And though we weren't ready for the season to end, it did. In the end, a lot of lessons were learned. Stories were written on the pages of countless lives.

As each of you walk into the future, may you become men of honor and outstanding leaders. Drawing from your gridiron experiences, may you lives out life with integrity, passion and purpose.
