THE HATCHET'S 2015 BEST OF NORTHWEST

JOHN KOPRIVA

HOTTEST MALE ATHLETE

Runners up: Brian Mojica, Joe McDonald

 

They say the hardest thing to do in sports is repeat. Tell that to John Kopriva, our hottest male athlete two years running.

 

First of all, he’s six feet, eight inches of cut muscle topped off by cheekbones that could cut diamonds and a smile that would be sure to melt your mom’s heart and earn your father’s grudging approval.

 

If you’re lucky, you’ll catch Kopriva breaking out his version of Derek Zoolander’s “Blue Steel,” which brings into question Zoolander’s assertion that there’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking.

 

Kopriva, a senior, hung up his jersey at the end of the 2014-15 season and will graduate in May. His senior season was his best on the team, he averaged 6.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game as a starter, proving that some things do get better with age.
