10/20 at Trinity Valley* • 37-28 L

The quest for three came to an end on October 20 as Cooper lost to Trinity Valley 37-28. It was a year built on a learning curve as the Dragons could never find that final solution to the winning puzzle. Both the Cooper defense and offense had their fair share of successes, and certainly disappointments as the year went on but must be satisfied in the overall team growth and the knowledge that the future is bright. Stars like senior LB Cole Sheppard and senior DT Jackson Todd will be missed, but sophomore LB Cooper Dupuis and sophomore LB Colton Rhoden look to be able to fill big shoes. The offense is young, and we will miss guys like senior WR Gus Feinberg and senior OL David Sims, but again the lair provides us with young guys ready to take their place. The Dragons will regroup, reload and no doubt be back in the hunt next year. –Coach Daniel Lewis

Season Record 4-5 • Conference Record 4-2

Congratulations to senior LB Cole Sheppard, who broke the single-season tackle record with 102 tackles.
