REED CITY — It will be tough for Reed City boys basketball team to replace the nine seniors on this year’s team, which was 13-9 overall and 9-5 in the league for third place.

The senior class included Preston Johnson, who turned in another impressive varsity season.

The Coyotes started out fast and ran into a slight midseason skid. A win over Big Rapids in the first round of the district was a major highlight along with a home season finale victory over Newaygo.

“I’ve been improving a lot throughout the season,” Johnson, a forward-center said. “I’m there to get rebounds, scores, putbacks and all of that. I’ve been working at finishing layups, that’s the biggest thing.”

A lot of Johnson’s points came from layups

“We just have to play hard, play as a team and get to it,” he said.
