REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Kyle Wright, like the rest of his Reed City football teammates, was confident late last week of success against Muskegon Oakridge in the district finals Friday night. \u201cStaying focused and execution and just working hard\u201d was the theme for the Coyotes going into Friday\u2019s game with Oakridge, Wright noted. But Oakridge would sneak out a heartbreaking 22-20 win over the Coyotes. Wright, a senior tight end and outside linebacker, noted that practices during playoff time weren\u2019t quite the same as during the regular season. \u201cIt\u2019s lot more intense,\u201d he said. \u201cCoaches try to get under your skin a little more and see if you can break under pressure. It makes it more fun.\u201d The Coyotes started the playoff season with a 49-7 win over Clare. \u201cThey\u2019re a really good team but we executed very well and we practiced good all week and hard,\u201d Wright said. \u201cWe were just physical.\u201d Wright and the Coyotes had realized going into the Oakridge game that it wouldn\u2019t be easy. \u201cThey\u2019re a really good team. They\u2019re such a solid program,\u201d Wright said. \u201cWe just need to play our game. We feel that we\u2019re a really good team too.\u201d Wright has been happy with his own football efforts this season. \u201cI\u2019m playing more intense, more physical as the season has gone on,\u201d he said. Playing at Reed City the two two weeks for the playoffs was a bonus, Wright noted. \u201cWe love playing in front of our crowd and community,\u201d Wright said last week. \u201cThere\u2019s been a lot of buzz (about Reed City football). We\u2019ve been focused. We were here last year. \u201cWe knew we did wrong. We\u2019re trying to make up for that this year.\u201d Their efforts fell short, but at 10-1, it was still quite a season.
