Darren Cooper is a Staff Writer for MyLASports.com.
Despite growing up outside New Orleans, Darren always had a connection to Los Angeles sports. When his uncles liked the Celtics in the 80s, he went with the Lakers and Showtime and he was always a fan of the Air Coryell offense and the then-San Diego Chargers.
Since relocating to the Northeast, Darren has been a sportswriter since 1998 and has covered Super Bowls, Major League Baseball, the NBA and traveled coast-to-coast watching high school football. He’s broadcast multiple sports, including football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling and even spent a summer as a play-by-play man for an independent league baseball team.
Darren has received over a dozen statewide awards for his work and was honored by the Associated Press of Sports Editors in 2022 for feature writing.
He never tires about writing about any sport, the only thing that fatigues him is his three boys and juggling all their swimming practices. He’s written for sites throughout Catena’s wide network of offerings.
Here’s a look at some of Darren’s work.
