For as long as he has been in football, Lamart Cooper has heard the remarks. "He's too small," they said. "He'll never survive," they cautioned. "He doesn't fit into our plans," they explained. Ah, recognizing football talent can be such a precise science, can't it? The formulas are so clear, the parameters so well defined. But every now and then, along comes someone like Cooper to alter those preconceived ideas of what a football player should look like.

See Lamart Cooper run. See Lamart Cooper catch. See Lamart Cooper throw. That, in a nutshell, summed up the offensive strategy for the Antelope Valley College football team in a nonconference game against visiting Ventura on Saturday night. And that strategy was especially apparent in the first half, when the Marauders jumped to a 13-point lead at intermission on their way to a 23-10 victory. Cooper, a slotback, touched the ball only seven times a week ago when the Marauders tied Valley.
