A true example of what a Student-Athlete should be. He is to be admired, and hopefully our young players in Hampton Roads will read this story and yearn to be like Copper, and not some other recent poor examples.

I PLAYED FOOTBALL WITH COPPER AT FORK UNION AND HE WAS A GREAT TEAMMATE. HE WAS ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP IN TIMES OF NEED AND WOULD GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK. HE'S A FIRST CLASS INDIVIDUAL AND WORKS HARDER THAN ANYONE I HAVE EVER MET. I AM CONFIDENT THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO DO GREAT THINGS AFTER FOOTBALL AND CONTINUE TO INSPIRE OTHERS AROUND HIM.
