When Coach Cooper is not coaching, along with his wife Antaya, he is selling houses. Coach Cooper and his wife are liscened real estate agents with Keller Williams Exton - Spouses Selling Houses The Coopers are also active in the community. It could be the Annual KW Cares Coat Drive or a food drive for The Lord's Pantry.

Coach Cooper's motto: Run Hard, Run Fast and have fun!!

You can often find Coach Davenport encouraging those athletes that may not have a positive outlook on things. You can often here her saying that everyone has potential, we just have to dust you off and polish you up so that you can see those sparkling qualities that I see within you. Coach Davenport loves working with children and enabling them to see all the positives in life, hence why she professionally works as a Prevention Specialist at Downingtown Middle School.
