REED CITY \u2013 Reed City\u2019s wrestling team is off to a 5-1 start, and veteran wrestler Anakin Andrus is hoping he can continue to contribute to the team\u2019s success. Andrus is coming off a soccer season in the fall. As of preseason, he was the only senior on the wrestling team. He\u2019s been wrestling seven years and is entering his final season on varsity. \u201cI\u2019ve met a lot of good people and I\u2019ve had a lot of good teammates,\u201d he said. \u201cOne of them would be my mentor Ryan Simmons. He\u2019s taught me everything I know. I\u2019ve met some very good wrestlers along the way who have taught me the sport and what it\u2019s all about. \u201cIn wrestling, if you want to work for something, you have to be willing to put in a little bit of suffering.\u201d Andrus was at 112 last season and plans on being at the class again this year. Last year he was 16-9 while wrestling a partial season. For this year, Andrus is looking at qualifying for the state meet. \u201cIt will take a lot of hard work, a lot of soul searching and a lot of teamwork, and work in and out of the wrestling room and weight room,\u201d Andrus said. \u201cMy strengths are agility, and I\u2019m very smart at the moves I pick. I\u2019m very very meticulous. I\u2019m strong for my size, that\u2019s what I\u2019ve been told.\u201d During the spring, Andrus will continue to work out to stay in shape. Andrus hopes to help the Coyotes be a factor in the Central State Activities Association (CSAA) Gold Division.
