The Washington State Cougars’ 4-star quarterback commit Cammon Cooper started 2017 off with a bang when he threw for 10 touchdowns in his team’s season-opener, a 72-66 double overtime win.
That’s right. Ten. One-zero. No typo.
“I don’t even,” Cooper told the Deseret News. “It’s indescribable. It feels great to get the win.”
And it was a pretty huge win for Cooper, who threw for 599 yards overall — his team (Lehi) was ranked fifth in Utah heading into the game against Alta, which was ranked second. To state the obvious: He didn’t do this against a bunch of scrubs from a bottom-dweller.
There aren’t a ton of highlights out there yet (we’ll keep an eye out for the coaches’ video at Hudl; EDIT: here it is), but there is this — in which you can see Cooper’s compact, quick delivery on display:
My favorite throw is the dart on the move to his left at about 1:25.
Cooper is the Cougars’ highest rated quarterback recruit under Mike Leach, the first 247Sports four-star composite QB to commit to come to Pullman and command the Air Raid. He also was selected to the Elite 11, the first WSU commit in nearly 15 years to be honored as one of the best QB recruits in the country.
