Sophomore Kicker Cooper West Tabbed to D3football.com National Team of the Week

D3football TOW #5

BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--Adrian College sophomore kicker Cooper West (Belleville, Mich./Lincoln High School) made his first appearance on the D3football.com Team of the Week, announced late Monday evening. West is the first Bulldogs placekicker to earn this national accolade since Cameron Cook accomplished the feat twice during his 2017 All-America season.

West went 3-for-3 on field goals of just 30, 20 and 18 yards, but it was his final kick that was the game-winner with 3 seconds left to lift Adrian to a 30-27 victory over Kalamazoo. That marks the second consecutive game that Adrian has won with his leg and on the last play of the game (he booted a 26-yarder vs Wisconsin Lutheran in double overtime, 32-29, on Sept. 21).

All told, Adrian leads the MIAA with 38 all-time citations. Before today, running back Emmanuel Stewart was the last AC student-athlete in Week 8 of last year to earn D3football.com TOW.

Adrian is 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the MIAA heading into Saturday's (2 p.m.) conference contest at Olivet (4-0 overall, 1-0 MIAA).
