Senior Standout: Cooper Spicher

Posted: Updated:
At night, stars shine brightest. And for the North Star Knights, Cooper Spicher is the brightest star of them all.

"He's just one of those kids that everyone seems to gravitate towards and just likes his personality and he does everything the right way. As an athlete he's fantastic. He's a great leader. He's one of the kids that will do anything for you, he's selfless. But as far as a person I think he's an even better person," Brian Campbell, North Star Track Coach.

Only a senior in high school, but you wouldn't know it by his maturity.

"Earlier this year my father passed away and one of the first people to send me condolences was Cooper and they were pretty heartfelt and that's just kind of the kid he is. He's just one of those kids that will do anything for anybody and if my son turns out like him I'll be pretty happy," Brian Campbell, North Star Track Coach.

Cooper's had his own adversity this year as well. But as a kid with his athletic ability and work ethic he's been able to overcome his setback.

"Cooper always works through everything. He's been injured this whole year and he's pushed through everything and he motivates me to push through everything and he's really just a team motivator," said Delainey Spicher, Cooper's Cousin/Senior.

Cooper will be leaving his team and won't be joining another one in college. Despite having offers to play football or track at smaller schools, he decided he wanted to enjoy college and just be a student.

"That's just it. I want to go to Bozeman and get a degree in Agriculture and since I hope on coming back to the farm to help out and eventually take it over I figure I might as well go enjoy life out of the hi-line while I can," said Cooper Spicher.

Cooper understands that there's more to life than sports. But unfortunately for all those people who want to continue to watch Cooper play sports, they'll just have to wish upon a star.
