Schebil having strong season for Reed City



REED CITY – Dylan Schebil is a Reed City junior who saw valuable experience as a sophomore last season and is hoping to push the Coyotes in having another excellent football campaign/

“I think it went pretty good,” Schebil said of the 2019 season. “It was definitely disappointing not winning conference and having a short run in the conference. But I definitely think we’ll break that this year and hopefully make a run in the playoffs. I definitely think we can win the conference this year.”

Reed City is off to a 3-0 start.

Last year, Schebil played center and he returns this year as a tackle both ways.

“I really think the key is staying low and keeping your feet moving,” Schebil said. “If you’re lower than the guy in front of you, then they’re kind of done for.”

Schebil considered himself to be a reliable center when it came to snapping the ball.

“I know I messed up a couple of times when it was wet,” he recalled. Other than that, it worked out pretty good.”

As a defensive tackle “I have a longer reach than most of the D linemen on our team,” Schebil said. “I favor offense more.”

Schebil attended the Reed City summer practice and recalls his reaction in mid-August when the MHSAA initially decided it would have football in the spring.

“I was disappointed and am unsure if they’ll play in the spring,” he said. “But I’d rather have a season than no season.”

Two weeks later, the MHSAA decided to have the season in the fall.

“I really think we can move the ball up and down the field,” Schebil said coming into the season. “I think we’ll be a force to be reckoned with. Central Montcalm will be a good team. I remember my freshman year Tri County was good.”

Schebil also runs track and plays basketball.

But football is his favorite sport.

“I’ve loved it ever since I was a little kid,” he said.
