Yakima English teacher wants to be on cover of Men's Health magazine

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A Yakima English teacher wants to be on the cover of Men's Health magazine.

57-year-old Terry Cooper has spent three years cutting weight and getting fit. He entered a nationwide contest to be on the magazine's November issue. Cooper had to submit pictures and write four essays.

He's been teaching at Davis High School for almost 30 years and says he hopes to be a role model for his students to stay fit.

"We so often get caught up in what the expectation for behavior and looks for people of a certain age, and we don't realize we can do more," said Cooper.

A winner is expected to be chosen by the end of July.
