Cooper Christensen’s family helped establish Royal City. He’s channelling their legacy of hard work on the football field: SBLive Washington podcast

Royal senior Cooper Christensen has watched the 2019 1A state title some 20 times for a reason.

The two-way 1A Associated Press all-state selection joined this week’s episode of the SBLive Washington podcast to explain the role his grandparents, the late Erma and Jay Christensen, played in establishing the town’s farming community in the 1960s and how he’s built himself into an all-time program great in a football-crazed town. His interview starts around the 19 minute mark. The episode also touches on outdoor high school stadium capacity in Washington, the status of high risk indoor sports like basketball and wrestling and a new segment called “Past and Present.”
