GPB Sports interviews Cooper as North Gwinnett takes on Camden County at the Georgia Dome on August, 2013.

This past weekend was a somber one for the North Gwinnett Bulldogs, as a special member of their community and proud supporter of the football team passed away.

Cooper O'Brien, who fought a long battle with a cancer called clear cell sarcoma, was as an honorary team captain for the Bulldogs during the 2013 season. According to those around him, his positivity and upbeat spirit truly set him apart.

GPB Sports spent some time getting to know the eighth-grader while his Bulldogs faced the Camden County Wildcats during the 2013 Corky Kell Classic.

The video below contains the interview, which begins at the 1:48 mark:
