He won the Triple Crown by leading the league in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns in the regular season.
He was like a cheat code on the field because man-to-man coverage won’t work against him.
More importantly, he was always part of the team’s biggest moments in their Super Bowl-winning campaign.
If not for his catch against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the Divisional Weekend, the game would have gone to overtime and Tom Brady might have another comeback win up his sleeve.
Likewise, he was in the zone during Super Bowl LVI’s game-winning drive, catching four passes including the back-shoulder touchdown catch against Eli Apple.
Without a doubt, he deserved to become Super Bowl MVP because he caught two critical touchdowns.
Kupp couldn’t write the ending any better.
But he’s come a long way from being an unknown prospect to a bonafide star.
Worth The Grind
The former Eastern Washington standout who received little to no scholarship offers is now on top of the NFL world.
In 21 games, he finished with 178 catches, 2,425 yards, and 22 touchdowns.
Cooper Kupp's full season (21 games):
* 178 catches, 2,425 yards, 22 TD
* NFL regular season receiving triple crown
* Unanimous All-Pro
* Most catches in a single postseason (33)
* NFL Offensive Player of the Year
* Super Bowl MVP
One of the greatest individual seasons ever.

There’s no stone left unturned because he collected personal and team accomplishments.
He’s only one of three wide receivers in history to have at least 21 touchdowns in a season, playoffs included.
Kupp is also an undisputed First-Team All-Pro and the only player other than Brady and Aaron Rodgers who received a league MVP vote.
It would be difficult to match, if not surpass the numbers he had this season.
However, the rest of the league should worry because he’s just getting started.
