Max Copeland played for the Missouri Wolverines as a 7th Grader back in 2003. As a 7th Grader on a team made up of both 7th and 8th Graders, Max was the starting Left Guard on the team. Ironically a position he would end up playing later for the Missouri Tigers where he was a starter in 2012 and 2013.
Unfortunately Max's family moved to Montana at the end of his 7th Grade year however Max's significance and contributions were still significant enough to include him on this list.
Former 7th & 8th Grade Head Coach Jim Tuso still speaks of Max being one of a handful of offensive lineman to be able to pull effectively back when the organization was just starting.
Max ended up having an exceptional career in high school in Montana and walked on to play football at Mizzou. His junior year he earned a scholarship and became a starter his junior and senior years at Left Guard.
