REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Dean Eichenberg and his Reed City football team recently finished their season at 10-1. Now that Eichenberg is on the basketball court, he wouldn\u2019t mind enjoying similiar success during the winter. The boys basketball practice season started last week. Games begin the second week of December. Eichenberg said the transition from football to basketball can take about a good solid week. \u201cI took it easy (two weeks ago),\u201d he said. \u201cI went to the rec center and played a little bit of basketball and tried to get back in the groove.\u201d A week of practice should take away the football body and make him ready for basketball, Eichenberg indicated. This is his second varsity season. Last year, \u201cwe had a lot of hustle,\u201d he said. \u201cI think we have even more this year. We\u2019re more focused. For being the first year of coaching (with Dean McGuire), it was a good year.\u201d Eichenberg figures on playing the two-guard and also being at the three-spot. Shooting will be a main thing for Eichenberg, especially from outside. \u201cWe have a lot of good shooters,\u201d he said, adding that confidence will be a key in that area. \u201cI didn\u2019t have it last year. I have more of it this year.\u201d Eichenberg expects the Coyotes to be more of a run-and-gun type of team. \u201cWe lost some (players from last year) and we\u2019ve got some,\u201d he said. \u201cWe hustle a lot.\u201d Eichenberg expects a good record while pointing to Big Rapids and Cadillac as being the toughest teams the Coyotes will see. \u201cWe have to have fun and go out and play our hearts out,\u201d he said.
