Student Spotlight: Nik Cooper

Interview by Griffin Quadro, Staff Writer

How long have you been playing football?

I’ve been playing football ever since I was a little kid playing for campbell community peewee football.

What’s your goal this year?

My goal this season is to have the most  touchdowns on our team and make a name for myself as a football player at Leigh.

Do you think you’ll be a good team?

We have a pretty inexperienced team especially with our new quarterback and running back, but I believe we can be a great team and play hard and disciplined.

How’s the team chemistry?

The team chemistry is great, but as we have gone through the season and practices players are feeling more confident and more comfortable with each and everyone.

Who is the funniest guy on the team and why?

I think the funniest guy on our team has to be our head coach, He makes jokes and really just makes games and practices more enjoyable.

Who are the leaders and captains of the team?

The leaders on our team are definitely Kyle and Eric. Kyle is the quarterback and leader of our offence and Eric can just get everybody hyped before and during the game.

Do you want to play college football?

Yes, I am definitely looking into playing college football at either a high D2 or lower D1.
