REDDING, Calif. - Cooper Janusevskis goes by the nickname "Cooper J", because his full name can be difficult to pronounce.
The Foothill wide receiver had a productive senior season, hauling in 909 yards worth of receptions. He said he's more than comfortable on the football field. Cooper J considers the gridiron as a kind of a sanctuary.
"If something is wrong at home or with anything, I just forget about everything, it's just football," said Janusevskis.
His future is bright. As an excellent student he has a guaranteed full-scholarship at the Air Force Academy. But he would like to play for a Pac-12 school. At 6'4" he has the right height, but needs to add some weight to his 185-pound frame.
"Train, work hard, be good in the classroom and hopefully things will fall into place as it should. I just workout in the off-season."
"Cooper J" is also looking at U.C. Davis, Fresno State and San Jose State. Whether it's football, or something in the academic world, "Cooper J" has the tools to be a major success.
