Two Bowling Green Buccaneers football players have one game left, as they are headed to the Class 4A-5A-6A All-Star Game.
Seniors Steven Scott Cooper and Cade Knight are going to be playing in the MAIS All-Star Game.
“Both are great kids. They came to work everyday,” Bowling Green School coach Riley Boudreaux said. “Steven was a natural talent from the get go, a real special kid to have on the field. Cade made tremendous progress from his junior to his senior year. He really put in the work and wanted to be great. They took on the role of being of leaders.”
Both players had solid seasons.
Cooper caught 49 passes for 870 yards and 12 touchdowns in the Bucs’ eight games. He also ran the ball 21 times for 386 yards. Cooper completed 19-of-24 passes for 251 yards and three touchdowns. Cooper also had 170 total return yards, which included a punt return for a touchdown.
