REED CITY — Jon Green is coming off a strong football season for Reed City and is now utilizing his talents to help the Coyote wrestling squad be extremely competitive.

It’s the third wrestling season for the Coyote junior. He’s had winning records in the past. As of last week, he had just one loss for the season. It’s his best start as a varsity wrestler.

He was at 189 in the past and is at 171 pounds this year, a weight class that seems to favor him because of his natural size.

Green had eight wins, including four pins, prior to the Christmas break. His favorite wins came at the South Haven tournament where the team came in second.

“Taking shots” is an area in which Green indicated he has especially improved this season. But he especially continues to work in that area. Neutral is his best position.

Going into the rest of the season, Green’s goal is to keep improving and avoid any losses.

“Working hard in practice” is the basic key for that, he added.

Reed City is home Wednesday in CSAA action.

“Our goal is to make it to state as an individual and as a team,” Green said.

The Coyotes, generally speaking, have been enjoying quantity and quality this season.

“We’re missing a small guy and big guy,” Green said, adding that in his particular classes, the Coyotes continue to be strong.

Reed City is at the Gladwin Invitational on Saturday. The Coyotes are next at home Jan. 22 in CSAA competition.
