Reed City football teams continue blocking camps

REED CITY — It’s less than a month before football players will officially start preseason practices on Aug. 8.

But the Reed City Coyotes continue to put in summer work and on Monday continued their blocking camp sessions.

Monday marked the third blocking camp at the practice fields. The 90-minute sessions go 6-7:30 p.m.

“We do them Monday and Wednesday,” Reed City football coach Monty Price said. “It’s been pretty good. A lot of kids are working hard to get better.”

Each session has been attracting around 50 players.

“It’s basic football fundamentals,” Price said. “We’re breaking everything down. It’s extremely basic fundamentals stance, starts, it’s all broken down.”

Reed CIty was set to start 7-on-7 passing camps Tuesday at Cadillac.

“We’re going to have three sessions maybe four,” Price said. “We’re doing four dates up there. We’ll probably have about 20 kids (varsity and JV) up there.”

After a dead period, the Coyotes are on the practice field Aug. 8 in getting ready for the regular season.

“The kids like being together, being back playing football,” Ryan Ward, a Reed City assistant line coach, said. “They just working on (blocking) fundamentals.”
