Dr. Cooper’s Tackle on Fitness

January 16, 2015 1 comment

As you may have heard in the news, many congratulations are due to Dr. Kenneth Cooper! Last week Dr. Cooper was honored by the football community for his impact on athletes worldwide as a 2015 inductee into National Football Foundation (NFF) Leadership Hall of Fame.

A video tribute was created in his honor with interviews ranging from Troy Aikman to Ray Hunt to family members. As the kickoff event for the College Football Playoff National Championship weekend, the evening honoring Dr. Cooper was held at the Omni Dallas Hotel. The dinner co-chairmen include NFF Board Members and College Football Hall of Fame inductees Troy Aikman (UCLA) and Roger Staubach (Navy), current Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert. In addition to the tribute video, various media outlets covered the evening ranging from broadcast, print and radio.

“Our entire nation owes Dr. Cooper our deepest gratitude,” said NFF Chairman Archie Manning. “His teachings and insights have earned him the title as the father of aerobics, and he has espoused a lifestyle that has benefited everybody from top athletes to senior citizens who are simply looking for ways to improve their quality of life. He clearly has defined himself as a leader who challenges the status quo, and has created a brighter future for the next generation.”

United States Representative Roger Williams, a member of NFF Board of Directors, arranged to have an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., on Dec. 14, commemorating the induction of Dr. Kenneth Cooper.
