Who Is This FL HS Legend? Andre Cooper/Fletcher

Recommended Posts

Was one of the most highly recruited FL hs wide receivers of the 90's and a high school All-American.  Was also one of the top hs basketball players in the state.  His name is still in the Noles' record books.  He also set an Orange Bowl record.  Noles fans may remember his game-winning TD catch there.  His NFL career never took off, though.

Who is he and for what high school did he play?

It is Andre Cooper of Neptune Beach Fletcher High.  Here are some highlights of his career numbers as a ’Nole:

  • Cooper’s 71 receptions, in ’95, are tied for the fifth most in an FSU season. With whom is he tied? Peter Warrick, who had as many grabs in his best season (1999).
  • Cooper’s 132 career catches are tied for 12th in program history with De’Cody Fagg and Warrick Dunn.
  • Cooper has the sixth-most career touchdown grabs in school history, with 24. FSU legend Ron Sellers finished with 23.
  • Cooper is tied for the most TD snags in a single regular season, with 15 in 1995. The only other ’Nole to post that number: Kelvin Benjamin, in 2013.  He holds the record of 18 for most TD receptions in a season If one includes his 3 postseason TD's.
  • There have been just 12 1,000+ receiving-yard seasons notched by Seminole WRs. Cooper’s 1,002 yards in 1995 is one of there.
