Coaches Q&A: 

What type of player is Cyree?

“Cyree epitomizes the traits that we want our football team to have each and every season.  He is a hard-working, blue collar, tough, gritty player that has an outstanding football IQ.  He has quick feet and is able to make good decisions when running the football often in tight spaces.  He is a valuable player for us that can and will play both sides of the football.  On offensive, he is an explosive running back that gets stronger as the game goes on.  His patience in the hole and his ability to either make defenders miss in the hole or drive piles when nothing is there is what makes him successful as a running back.  Cyree is also a valuable member of our defense.  He plays outside linebacker in our 4-4 scheme.  He has great instincts for the football and does a really good job on coming up to seal the edge or fill a hole in run support.  He is a big hitter who seems to love the contact.  Overall, he is one of our best football players and a very good leader for us both on and off the field.”

What has he meant for your team?

“Cyree is an integral part of our team and his leadership will be necessary to accomplish the goals that we have set out for our season.  He is an incredible young man to be able to have the opportunity to coach.  He is everything you want in your players. He is respectful, hard-working, tough minded, intelligent, competitive, relentless, driven, and is hungry to lead this team to accomplish our goals.  We expect a lot out of Cyree this season and expect that he will be one of the major reasons that we will have a successful season.  He is one of those players that does not come around very often in your coaching career so as a coach, you enjoy coaching him every day and you look forward to watching what he can do on game days.  We expect a big year from him this season on both sides of the football.”

Schools of Interest: He has interest from several schools like Old Dominion, UPenn and Butler.
