Former Coyote reflects on college football
ALMA -- Connor Agan, who played on some of the Reed City championship teams in the late 2010s, got his feet wet on the collegiate level this past fall with Alma College.
The Coyotes won league, district and regional titles during Agan's tenure.
He was listed as a running back on the Alma roster. He was not listed on the varsity stat sheet but said he saw action in one varsity game and every JV contest. He was among several Coyotes who have joined college football programs. Some are being redshirted while others have seen limited playing time.
"The (Alma) JV went undefeated and the varsity was 6-4 this year," Agan said.
Agan was also a running back at Reed City.
He indicated he went to Alma because he liked the family type of atmosphere.
"They always want to know what you're up to and how it's going," he said. "It was like how things were done at Reed City."
He's majoring in criminal justice. Agan said he's considering transferring to Ferris State to enroll in the criminal justice program and try out for the football team.
The biggest challenge transferring from high school to college football "is learning a different formation and running it that way and not the way we learned in high school," Agan said. "There's a lot more people that you have to be at your best to be better than or work harder than them.
"I love college football. They treat you like they know you forever. Everybody loved each other."
