Cooper recorded eight shutouts in 2006 and led the Peach Belt with a 0.49 goals against average, which is also an Upstate single-season record. In 2005, he was tops in the Peach Belt in both shutouts (8.5) and goals against average (0.57), and posted four consecutive shutouts during one stretch. He owns the career record for goals against average (0.53) at Upstate.
