CSU Lacrosse Hall of Fame


Kellin is a local Fort Collins product and played long pole defense at CSU. Kellin was a starter before the end of his freshman year. As a Ram he is regarded as one of the greatest all time CSU lock-down defenders. With speed to match his size, he was able to handle defending the opposition’s best attackers game in and game out. He was a twice voted a team Captain, and he was selected nationally as a first team MCLA All American. He played on the CSU National Championship teams in 2003 and 2006. Kellin is an Electrical Engineer and lives in Erie, Colorado.


Cooper is a first ballot election as a 2011 graduate. He played attack, and upon his arrival he quickly became a team leader and was a 3-time team Captain, defining great leadership during all of his time at State. From his first freshman moment at CSU, this California kid started scoring college goals and creating more offense for his team by spoiling or disrupting the other team’s attempt to clear the ball. Cooper’s character is a legacy that has had a lasting impact on the CSU lacrosse program. In both 2010 and 2011 he was named first team MCLA All America. Cooper’s career stats place him in the top-3 of many CSU all time statistical categories, including goals, assists, points, and ground balls. Cooper now teaches high school and continues to coach lacrosse and football at Robert Louis Stevenson in Carmel, CA. He remains close to his Ramily and visits the Fort often.
