Deer Creek’s Cooper Thomas – Boys Tennis Poll Winner Presented by Iron Nation Harley-Davidson

Cooper Thomas had a great senior season competing for the Deer Creek High School tennis team. He has been playing the sport since seventh grade after a couple of friends on the tennis team encouraged him to try it out. This season he was able to achieve a goal that he never has before.

“A standout moment for me individually was winning a regional championship because that is something I have not done in my career,” said Thomas.

Thomas’ favorite thing about being a DC Antler athlete is his teammates.

“The thing I like most about competing for my school is my team,” he said. “They are all some of my closest friends and they make the sport so much more fun.”

Thomas has admires his father as a role model and appreciates the support he has received from him over the years.

“I look up to my Dad as one of my role models because he is very knowledgeable about the game of tennis and was always encouraging me throughout the season,” he said.

The thing that has motivates Thomas to push himself in all aspects of his life, especially tennis, is his competitive nature.

“I am motivated to be the best because of how competitive I am,” he said. “I want to win and succeed in everything that I do, especially tennis.”

After graduation, Thomas’ plans include attending Oklahoma State University and pursuing a degree in entrepreneurship.
