Cooper Robert Rush was born on November 21, 1993, he is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Central Michigan, and was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2017.



Originally from Charlotte, Michigan, Rush was recruited by Lansing Catholic High School in Lansing, Michigan, with an enrollment of just over 500 students, where he became a three-year starter at quarterback for the football team. He also played basketball and baseball (until his freshman year).

In his redshirt season at Central Michigan, he was named the school’s Scout Team Player of the Year. As a freshman, although he began the season as the third-string quarterback, he was named the starter by the third game, after Cody Kater was injured (collarbone fracture) and his backup Alex Niznak couldn’t move the offense against the University of New Hampshire.



In that contest he came in the second quarter and helped engineer a 24–21 come from behind victory, where he tallied 326 passing yards and 3 touchdowns, tying the school record for the longest in history (97 yards). He would never relinquish the position or miss a start after the game.

Coming out of Central Michigan, Rush was projected by the majority of NFL draft experts and analysts to be a seventh-round pick or a priority undrafted free agent. On December 6, 2016, it was announced that Rush had accepted his invitation to the East-West Shrine Game. On January 21, 2017, Rush performed in the East-West Shrine Game for the East and completed 11 of 17 pass attempts for 97 yards in a 10–3 loss to the West.

On August 30, 2022, Rush was waived by the Cowboys and signed to the practice squad the next day. He was signed to the active roster on September 17, 2022, to be the starter following an injury to Dak Prescott. He made his first start of the season in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, where he threw for 235 yards and a touchdown in the 20–17 win.
