Schebil having fun catching passes for Reed City

Dylan Schebil



REED CITY - Reed City senior Dylan Schebil made a position switch this season and he's been liking it so far.

Schebil has been tight end this season. Last year he was an offensive tackle. He said the move was his idea.

"I wanted to catch the ball," he said. "I like it there. The key is to go get the ball and be physical."

When it comes to running after catching the ball, "I'm all right, I think. I want to improve on my running and blocking, everything overall."

In a run-oriented offense like Reed City's, blocking skills remain critical.

"I think it's been effective," he said. "If we can block, we can run up the score."

Schebil has been confident in being able to get off his feet and sustain his block well.

Reed City entered Friday's homecoming game with Central Montcalm at 4-1 overall and 4-0 in the CSAA Gold with a four-game winning streak.

"We just have to keep working hard in practice and have a good mentality," he said.

The Coyotes, after losing the first game of the season to Cadillac, have reeled off five straight wins over Grant, Tri County, Chippewa Hills, Big Rapids and Central Montcalm.

Coming up are games next Friday at Newaygo followed by home games with Fremont on Oct. 15 and Whitehall on Oct. 22.

The Newaygo and Fremont game will count in the CSAA standings as the Coyotes hope to win another title.

Whitehall will be a non-league game.
