Coon Rapids connection to Golden Hurricanes
Teammates from Coon Rapids’ 1983 state championship football team, Tom Copa (class of 1983) and Jon Scott (class of 1984) have sons who have followed suit, in a way.
Charlie Copa and Colby Scott are teammates at the University of Tulsa.
Copa and Scott both are sophomore tight ends. Copa, a transfer from Syracuse University, started three games, while Scott missed the 2012 season due to a knee injury.
The Golden Hurricanes will face Iowa State in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl Dec. 31 after winning the Conference USA Championship game 33-27 against the University of Central Florida Dec. 1.
Tulsa opened the season with a 38-23 loss at Iowa State in the season-opener Sept. 1.
