Winamac's Reed is Loganland Defensive Player of Year

(Continued)

Reed enjoyed playing for the Midwest Conference, sectional and regional championship Warriors squad this year.

“I credit our seniors. They led us far this year. We owe it to them. They were a good bunch to play with,” he said.

Reed was in the middle of a dominating linebacker group that included Katschke and Kasten.

“I knew those guys on and off the field and they were awesome to play with,” Reed said. “We really clicked well when us three were together.”

The Warriors finished 10th in the state in points scored (45.9 ppg), sixth in defensive scoring average (10.2 ppg) and sixth in average margin (plus-35.7 ppg).

But those numbers don’t tell the whole story, as the first-team defense allowed just two scores during the undefeated regular season. In fact the Warriors were such a dominating team that their backups — consisting of JV and freshman team players — had over 1,200 yards of offense for the varsity this season while playing in garbage time of blowout victories.

Those numbers could foretell good things for the Warriors in the future. They’ll have four of their five starting offensive linemen and starting quarterback Parker Fox on offense. Reed and Fox and some of the linemen will be leading returnees on defense as well.

Reed will play on offense too next year, Roth said, likely at either halfback or fullback.

Reed expects the Warriors to field another strong team.

“I think we’ll have a good team. We lost a lot of good seniors but we have a lot of good juniors and sophomores who should be really good next year. Parker Fox, Dalton Button, Wyatt Spence ... we’ve got a lot of guys back. We’ll be really good because of those guys,” he said.

The following are capsules of the rest of this year’s All-Loganland defense.
