You can now add “state champion” to the long list of accomplishments by Washington State Cougars quarterback commit Cammon Cooper: His Lehi Pioneers won the Utah title Friday night with a 55-17 blowout of Skyridge.
Cooper threw for just 262 yards in poor conditions, but he accounted for seven touchdowns, one of which was a 44-yard run.
"The receivers were making great catches and I ran the ball when I had to," Cooper said. "Things were just open for me and all-around it was just a great game for us."
Lehi was winless four years ago, when Cooper was a freshman.
“There’s certain kids you look at and you go, ‘There’s Cinderella qualities to that guy.’ ” said Ed Larson, Cooper’s coach. “In my opinion, the greatest quarterback this state has ever seen.”
The stats would certainly back him up.

Cooper — rated four stars by Rivals — is the most highly regarded quarterback recruit in the Mike Leach era, having been selected for the Elite 11. He is slated to sign with WSU during the inaugural early period (Dec. 20), graduate early from high school, then enroll at WSU during the spring semester.
He took his official visit to Pullman during the Stanford game:
