REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Reed City boasts a running attack where defenses can\u2019t focus on one player. In fact, they can\u2019t focus on two. Jon Green and Andre Jones provide a tough one-two punch out of the backfield for the Coyotes. But it\u2019s more like a three-man punch with junior Collin Hatfield contributing his talents to the mix. In a recent 48-14 win over Tri County, that gave the Coyotes a 2-0 start, Hatfield rushed for 89 yards. Reed City gained more than 500 yards rushing as a team against the Vikings. Hatfield made his varsity debut last year when the Coyotes rolled up their third straight 9-0 regular season record. \u201cI thought we did really good,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s a whole other team this year. There\u2019s a lot of things we can work on still. A lot of seniors (graduated) but a lot of guys have been stepping up for them.\u201d Hatfield indicated he\u2019s been able to show improvement so far this season. \u201cMy blocking is getting a lot better and I\u2019m playing defense this year,\u201d he said, adding that having Jones and Green in the backfield to make for a deeper running attack is extremely beneficial for the Coyote attack. \u201cWe\u2019re all similar. We all have good speed and awareness.\u201d Nolan Patterson has taken over at quarterback for the Coyotes, but that hasn\u2019t changed the offense, Hatfield indicated. \u201cNolan has stepped up and has done really good,\u201d Hatfield said, adding that he would likely be involved in the passing game \u201cif the play is there.\u201d On defense Hatfield is at cornerback, which had him focusing on defense. The Coyote pass defense was tested against Baldwin\u2019s Brandon Childress in the season opener. \u201cChildress is good,\u201d Hatfield said. \u201cHe can throw.\u201d The Coyotes lost to Newaygo Friday night and host Calvin Christian this week. \u201cI think we can potentially be just as good or better (from least season),\u201d Hatfield said. \u201cWe have to work hard at practice.\u201d It\u2019s a one-game-at-time mentality for the Coyotes. But Hatfield admits they would be having another big year. They can\u2019t go 9-0 but still have plenty of goals to pursue \u201cThe coaches have pushed us to step up,\u201d Hatfield said.
