Pioneers Welcome Newest Pro Athlete: Cooper Beebe

The Pioneers are thrilled to announce that Cooper Beebe has joined our team as the newest pro athlete. A recent Round 3 draft pick for the Dallas Cowboys, Cooper is a Kansas City native who played football at Kansas State, where he earned All-American honors in 2023.

Cooper's journey from Kansas City to the NFL is nothing short of inspiring. As an offensive guard, he has demonstrated outstanding skill, strength, and determination, making him a standout player at Kansas State. His accomplishments and dedication to the sport are a perfect fit for the Pioneers, and we are excited to welcome him to our growing roster of pro athletes.

As a local talent with deep ties to the Kansas City area, Cooper's addition to the Pioneers family is a point of pride for our community. Join us in celebrating Cooper Beebe's success and welcoming him to the Pioneers.
