REED CITY — Kameron Horchner has been among the Reed City soccer players taking advantage of open fields this summer in an effort to have a strong junior season.

He’s heading into his third varsity season. The Coyotes have had open fields this summer in anticipation of the practice season, which starts on Aug. 8.

“We did a scrimmage and we look to shoot in the low corners to keep the goalkeepers working,” Horchner said after a recent open field.

He’s been at a defending mid position

“I want to try working at being an attacking mid,” he said, adding a strength is “communication and telling my team what to do, and trying to switch fields. Summer activity for soccer players is really important,” he said. “The whole team should be out here if they can be, getting in shape and knowing the younger teammates. We’ll have tryouts during August.”

He’s played soccer several years, and Horchner feels he’s continually gotten better.

He said he wants to get better offensively this season.

The Coyotes will again be competing in the Central State Activities Association.

“I think we’ll have to see what the first practice looks like,” Horchner said.
