Amari Cooper owns every major Alabama receiving record
Every college football fan’s aware that Alabama wide receiver and probable Heisman Trophy candidate Amari Cooper is a beast.
But with the season he’s had, it’s worth taking a moment to pause and reflect on all Cooper’s accomplished.
— Career receptions
— Single-season receptions
— Catches in one game
— Career receiving yards
— Single-season receiving yards
— Receiving yards in one game
— Career touchdown catches
— Single-season receiving TDs
— TD catches in one game
Aside from three career marks, he’s broken the remaining six in this season. Cooper’s compiled 103 catches, 1,573 yards, and 14 TDs (and counting) in 2014.
He tied his own game-high of 13 catches last week vs. Auburn in the Iron Bowl, where, for good measure, he also broke Julio Jones’ record for receiving yards in a single game for the second time by going for 224 yards.
Oh, and he lit up the Tigers for three TD catches as well,something he did vs. Florida back in September.
Pretty amazing when you look at the whole body of work, huh?
And in case you missed it — or if you’d just like to re-watch it — here’s a recap of his work vs. Auburn (h/t: SB Nation):
