Reed City lineman excited with team’s fast start
REED CITY — His Reed City football team has started out 2-0 and senior lineman Dylan Chrispell is confident the wins can keep coming for the Coyotes.
The Coyotes struggled with penalties last Thursday in a Central State Activities Association Gold Division 60-17 victory over Tri County.
Chrispell is playing center.
“I think I’m really quick off the ball,” he said. “It helps out a lot being in the middle. I think I need to work on getting off the ball.”
The quarterback-center exchange has worked effectively, Chrispell indicated. His strength on defense has been “being fast off the ball and having good moves to get to the inside.”
Chrispell agrees that with an offense that has scored 118 points in two games, the Coyotes are showing a lot of promise.
“We have pretty much all of our running backs back again,” he said. “On our line, we didn’t lose many people and a lot of people have stepped up pretty well.”
Reed City has won four straight CSAA titles. Friday night, the Coyotes have an CSAA showdown at Newaygo. The Lions last season handed Reed City its only conference loss. But the Coyotes gained revenge over that team in the playoffs.
“I think we’re playing pretty good but not as good as we should,” Chrispell said. “We could play a lot better.”
