From Professional football royalty like the Manning's and the Ryan's, to the Bowden's in the college football world, and High School Football is no exception.
"Football at this level is obviously a big part of your life, as a coach, as a player, and it's kind of neat that it's a big part of our lives." says Van Gravitt.
Cooper's Running back coach and Head Freshman Coach Van Gravitt and his wife Cindy live in a house of boys, the oldest Denver and Corey both play for Cooper, where football has always been a big part of their lives.
"At Midland Christian was the earliest I can remember it, and I remember being out on the practice field with Dad and all the football player guys and my little toy footballs and stuff, and thinking 'I cant wait to be one of those guys.'" Says Denver Gravitt.
"Even when he was four years old he would draw out these elaborate plays, and just always loved it."
Since then the passion for football only grew. Watching your son play football from the stands every Friday night is a whirlwind experience, but watching from the sidelines is a whole different story.
"If I wasn't coaching, and they weren't players, that would be a whole lot of time apart, but it's cool because that is a lot of time we spend together." adds Gravitt.
"The funnest part to me is when we are all on the sidelines together," continues Corey Boone.
"Ive been shooting Cooper's football videos since 2006 so when Denver and Corey came along last year, That kind of changed things a little bit." says Cindy Gravitt.
"I always talk to her and say 'hey mom, you think that girls cute, I'm like look, look'" continues Corey.
"Whenever we are stretching before every game, He always comes up to me, when all the coaches are going around encouraging players, he always comes up to me before every game and says 'I love doing this with you.' "
"He's like a big influence in my life, and it teaches you how to be a man on the field and off the field."
"I want it to be a good experience for them, but I want them to leave Cooper a better place than when they came" adds Gravitt.
