Milton Woods(so) leaped 5-11 in the high jump at the Prospect Invitational last Friday. That mark is one the highest leaps this year in the CPS Leaderboard. Woods, a 6 foot 3 inch tall sophomore athlete from the basketball team also has the 7th best mark in the discus. Also watch out for new face sophomore Kevin Ma(so). Ma is a 2 flat type 800 meter runner. Look for them and the rest of the Dolphins in today's CPS Varsity Track trials.
Demetrius Cooper(6-5, 225lb, junior, DE) has transfered to Julian from Morgan Park.
I've personally seen Cooper play. Cooper is a speed rusher on the defensive side of the football. Colleges love his height and frame at 6-5, 225lbs. He's got that big frame to build on in college. Add his natural speed and you got the makings of player.
Cooper has performed well at recent off season football events. At the 5 Star Central Showcase he was named the Defensive Line MVP. As a result of good performances colleges have begun to notice. So far Northern Illinois and Western Michigan have made him offers.
There seems to be trend of players transferring to schools like Julian and CVS. Hard to keep up on all of these transfers.
