NFL All-Pro receiver Cooper Kupp earned his success from his first days at Eastern Washington

SPOKANE, Wash. — With former Eastern Washington All-American receiver Cooper Kupp starting the postseason with the Rams tonight, we take a look back at a story KXLY ran leading into Kupp’s first career game.

Kupp was redshirted at Eastern because the Eagles had three All-American receivers on the field in Brandon Kaufman, Nick Edwards, and Greg Herd.  All three receivers moved on at the end of that season, and little-knows Cooper Kupp exploded onto the scene.

Our Keith Osso looks back to his first game with Eastern Washington head coach Aaron Best, and former KXLY anchor Tom Giles who did the story on Kupp back in August of 2013.
