Liberty-Eylau Star left tackle, Kyler Cooks, signed Wednesday, December 21, with Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Kyler Cooks, a senior Liberty-Eylau Leopard will become a Texas State Bobcat next fall, as he has received a full football scholarship to attend the FCS Division 1 school.

Cooks wore #76 was the offensive tackle to watch out for and was voted most valuable lineman in district 7-4A. According to Liberty-Eylau athletic director, Steve Wells, he immediately saw something special in Cooks.

He pulled out on a screen pass to protect and he hit another player who’s helmet came off and I knew then he was special then.

Not only did Cooks excel on the gridiron, he also performed very well in the classroom. Although he does not know exactly what he will major in, he's looking forward to moving to San Marcos and attending Texas State University.

Congratulation, Kyler! You will absolutely love the city and the school. Make sure you pack some good walking shoes! :)
