Bio: Cooper has had a passion for soccer since he first kicked a ball. He has been blessed to a part of some fantastic travel teams with Loudoun Soccer. But one of his greatest achievements was helping take Loudoun Valley’s soccer team to the State Semi-Finals. The friends he has made through soccer will last a lifetime. Cooper also volunteers at Cornerstone Chapel as a teacher for the younger kids and is involved at Valley as a TA and through LVSI. He is excited to get back on the turf this fall at
Binghamton University. Go Bearcats!

Tell us your feelings about how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed your senior year: It’s disappointing as the Valley soccer team was confident and ready to take the team all the way the State Finals this spring. And I was excited to play with my brother who is a freshman this year. To not go to prom or graduation or be able to hang out with my friends before going off on our separate paths this fall is just sad.
