Reed City Duo Announce College Commitments

REED CITY – A pair of Reed City senior student-athletes announced their college commitments on Wednesday.

Quarterback Jeffrey Samuels is headed to Adrian College while teammate Austin Fowler is taking his talents to Olivet College.

“Honestly, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for (Coach) Shankel,” Fowler said. “When (Coach) Price was here, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him, and every coach that’s ever helped me, Hansen, even Jeffrey’s dad when he coached me when we were younger. They were always pushing me farther and farther.”

Fowler is interested in strength and conditioning.

“Waking up Saturday mornings, I’d go play early with youth football, and then rush home to watch college football on the TV, so you know, it’s always been a dream,” Samuels said.

Samuels plans to study education.
