Sarasota High Alum Cooper Hatten Now at Maine Maritime!

(FLN: Cooper graduated in 2021 and went to FAU for a year before transferring to Maine Maritime. It’s an unusual move, although growing more in numbers, from MCLA level to NCAA, so here is his Questionnaire. We decided to publish this now to highlight the possibilities that players should seek out.)

Congratulations Cooper for making this move and good luck in the future!

Why did you choose this college?
I chose this school because of the opportunity to learn about my passion which is the study of the Ocean. I also chose this school because of the opportunity that was offered to me to play for them.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
Get to know the school and the kinds of education it offers, as well as get to know the coach and talk around to some players who are already there to have an idea of what your days will look like with school and lacrosse.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
I would like to thank my nana, my mom, and my dad for pushing me to get better as well as to pursue what makes me happy.

What are your first memories of the sport?
My first memories of the sport was when I used to get butterflies before I stepped out onto the field way back when I first began playing.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
My favorite memory from high school would have to be being elected Captain of the team my Junior and Senior year.

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
Have to go with STX, for some reason the logo always stood out to me and I also enjoy how light some of them feel in the hands.

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
Probably would be Paul Rabil because he was really one of the first people I saw really striving to grow the game across the country.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
I do watch games, more college than pro but I really watch how the attack move to defense and goalie to get the easy goal not the first one.

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
Have to go with Chipotle

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
I got the half of my front teeth shattered because my brother rusty gated me in the face with no helmets on.
