What’s up Mobsquad?! There is so much to be excited about this season with the Rams but one thing that I am REALLY excited about is rookie wide receiver Cooper Kupp. So I think now would be a PERFECT time to do our first edition of 5 Fun Facts for the 2017-2018 Rams Football season.
Here’s 5 Fun Facts about Cooper Krupp!
1. Cooper Kupp went to Davis High and explained that after his last high school football game, he didn’t have a single scholarship offer. That is crazy!
2. Cooper Kupp attended Eastern Michigan University and the stats he racked up there are INSANE!. He broke many of NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice’s receiving records throughout his collegiate career and set at least 15 FCS records.
3. Kupp was voted All-American in each of his four years at Eastern Michigan. According to ESPN.com, he is the only player to win both the Jerry Rice Award and the Walter Payton Award.
4. Yes, Cooper Kupp attended an FCS school but he also faced FBS competitors on the field. When facing an FBS team, he averaged nine catches, 157 yards, and over two touchdowns per game. Safe to say, he showed well in both divisions.
5. It runs in the family. Cooper’s dad, Craig Krupp, was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the New York Giants in 1990. Cooper’s grandfather, Jake Krupp, was a New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame offensive linemen from 1964-75.
Well there you have it, five AMAZINGLY fun facts on Cooper Kupp.. I am so confident our rookie wide out will do wonders for this offense. I can’t wait to see the Goff/ Kupp duo make strides down the field this season.
