REED CITY – Seth Jackson continues to have a productive three-sport stint with Reed City athletics.

As a junior, Jackson has capped off strong seasons in football and basketball. He played a key role for a hoops team which was 14-7 under first-year coach Steve Ernst and defeated powerhouse Fremont during the regular season. For football, he helped the Coyotes win another CSAA Gold title

Jackson is on the outdoor track team thi fall.

It was two weeks ago the Coyotes ended the regular season.

“I think we could have won a couple of games that we lost,” Jackson said.

He and his teammates were hoping to have success in the district against Ludington but weren’t able to pull it out.

Jackson acknowledged the keys to success included having a high-paced offense and pressure defense.

“I usually try to find my open teammates,” Jackson said when asked to define his role on the team. “Whenever I’m open, I’ll shoot it.”

Jackson has been among the leader in points during the regular season. “I like to drive,” he said. “And I like to play defense. It’s been pretty hard.”

The key to keep having success all season, Jackson said, “was working hard.”

He will be among the returning players for the Coyotes next basketball season.

He’s focusing on track and field and Jackson is hoping to establish success in various events. He was in the 100 and 200 meters last year and had a personal record of 25.35 seconds in the 200. He also had a 12.56 RP in the 100 meters

Jackson’s 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams last season enjoyed enormous success and he’s hoping for more of the same this year. The Coyotes opened track practice this week and will start competing in early April.
