Cooper Kupp, the former Eastern Washington star, made a nice impact in his first NFL preseason game for the Los Angeles Rams.
In the very first quarter, he made his presence known with a 19-yard reception:

Then later on the drive, Robert Woods would cough up the football and Cooper Kupp was there to recover it for his first career touchdown in the NFL:
A lot of Eastern Washington fans were taking to social media to praise, arguably, the most successful EWU football player in program history:
