Ty Jose ready to take control as Chippewa Hills quarterback

Ty Jose

REMUS —Chippewa Hills ends its first week of football on Friday but senior quarterback Ty Jose likes what he’s seeing so far.

Practices started on Monday, and Jose, whose father Larry is the head coach, will be at quarterback and wide receiver this season.

Jose saw some action at quarterback last season, with Cade Schafer, who has graduated.

“It went pretty good,” he said. “I had decent yards for not starting.”

“He’s a very smart football player who leads the team on offense,” Larry Jose said.

Ty Jose considers himself more of a passing quarterback. He is coming off a busy summer.

“We’d come here three times a week,” he said. “We’d come extra after days and run routes. There was a lot of lifting. I’ve been working on my running. I’ve gotten a little faster.”

As a runner, “I look for holes and try to get through.”

Jose is also confident in his passing and hopes to help give the offense a diversified attack.

The Warriors scrimmage Thursday at Spring Lake. The first game is on Aug. 23 at Muskegon Oakridge. They hope to be a contender in the Central State Activities Association Gold. They open the league season at Newaygo on Aug. 30.
