REED CITY \u2014 A team that wins seven straight Central State Activities Association football titles is going to receive a good share of accolades in postseason all-league honors. This was the case again for the Reed City football team this fall. Reed City had eight players named to the first team: Juniors Phillip Jones, Zack Wirgau, Stephen Shewan, Anthony Pelton, Jackson Price, Brandon Major and seniors Bryce Grannis and Jackson Miller. Parker Ward made the honorable mention list. Jones a junior running back had 136 carries for 1,591 yards and 28 touchdowns with\u00a011.7 yards per carry. He had three catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns. He had two kickoff returns of 74 and 80 yards for touchdowns and is a second-year varsity player. \u201cPhillip is a first-team all-state caliber player,\u201d Reed City coach Monty Price said. \u201cPhillip had a record-breaking season and was unstoppable this year.\u00a0Without question, he\u2019s the most dangerous weapon in the area, and perhaps, in northern Michigan.\u201d Pelton is a junior offensive lineman. \u201cAnthony played tight end for us, but was really a lineman,\u201d Price said. \u201cWe moved him to both sides and ran behind him a majority of the time.\u00a0He is a devastating drive blocker, really good at second- and third-level blocks, and can set the edge on the outside run.\u00a0He is very physical on the line of scrimmage.\u00a0Our team rushed for 3,516 yards on the season.\u201d Miller is a senior offensive lineman \u201cJackson played tackle for us,\u201d Price said. \u201cHe is very physical and creates great vertical push on the line of scrimmage.\u00a0He is a very smart player, fundamentally and technically sound, and executes blocks at a high efficiency.\u201d Wirgau is a junior outside linebacker with 53 tackles, seven tackles for loss, and two sacks. \u201cZack is tough as nails on the edge for us,\u201d Price said. \u201cHe\u2019s a very physical player who dominated the league against kids much bigger than him.\u00a0It was extremely tough for opponents offensively because they could not run at him.\u201d Shewan is a junior outside linebacker, who had 63 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and five sacks. \u201cStephen is extremely fundamental and technically sound,\u201d Price said. \u201cHe\u2019s one of the smartest kids we have ever had the opportunity to coach.\u00a0 When teams tried to run away from Zack, they had Stephen to deal with. He is equally talented.\u00a0Stephen has the speed of a second-level player which creates challenges for the opponents.\u201d Phenix is a senior linebacker-defensive back who had 44 tackles including six for losses, one sack and one pass breakup. He\u2019s a third-year varsity player. \u201cJeffery was our most versatile defensive players,\u201d Phenix said. \u201cWe used him almost everywhere throughout the year.\u00a0He played defensive back, linebacker, and outside linebacker, and played them all well.\u00a0Regardless of his position, he was one of our best defenders.\u201d Jackson Price is a junior defensive back and quarterback, He had 33 rushes for 254 yards and two touchdowns and was 14-of-31 in passing for 271 yards and four scores. On defense, he had 30 tackles, five interceptions and nine pass breakups, plus one pick six. \u201cJackson\u2019s importance to our team can not be overstated,\u201d Monty Price said. \u201cHe has been one of our most consistent players on both sides of the ball.\u00a0He is a difference- maker on offense and has become one of the best DBs in the area.\u201d Grannis is a senior center, who gave his team key leadership on the offensive line.
