Each week we will honor a player that exhibits character, teamwork and leadership both on and off the field with the US Army Player of the Week. Congrats to the Playoff Round 1 winner, Cooper Pennington, of Goodpasture.
The Cougar QB has performed admirably all year on the gridiron and the classroom where he is an Honors Student. He also led Goodpasture to their first Playoff win since 2016 on Friday night as the Cougars knocked off Knoxville Webb 28-21. Pennington was an efficient 7 for 9 for 286 yards and 2 TDs in the win.
Cooper exhibits the type of character, work ethic, and selflessness the US Army values and that is why Cooper Pennington is our US Army Player of the Week for Playoffs Round 1. Congrats to Cooper and all of his Goodpasture teammates.
