Price looks back at Reed City track season

Reed City’s Jackson Price looks for a receiver at a recent passing camp.

REED CITY — Jackson Price is working with his other Reed City football teammates in preparing for the 2018 football season with an active summer program.

But still fresh in Price’s memory is a spring track season that provided many impressive results. His Coyotes took second in the Central State Activities Association Gold Division meet and was third in the division overall.

Price was the boys team’s leading scorer. He was the CSAA Gold champ in the 100 meters. He was ninth at state finals in the long jump, and 11th in 4×100 relay.

Price is a senior who will return this season for Reed City as quarterback. His team played in a 7-on-7 passing camp at Ferris in late June. Several more summer outings are in the works.

At the camps, he’s looking to get his timing down and improve his passing techniques. But he’s also a defensive back, and is using those camps to work on his skills in that position.

“We might do a little more passing, but it’s definitely a run-first team,” he said.

Price was happy with what he and the team was able to accomplish in track. The long jump was his best event.

“I tried it in practice,” he said. “It was kind of fun and I was pretty good at it. I didn’t think I’d be that good.”

The sport also keeps him in shape for football, Price added.
