Multiple Teams · Athlete of the Week: Rachel Copeland


_MG_0562 (1)Senior, Rachel Copeland, is a varsity starter on the DHS volleyball team. Copeland has played volleyball all four years in high school. After her freshman year she was on varsity and has been a starter every year since. When Copeland was interviewed, she had stated “I have been around volleyball my whole life because my father is a coach at Mineral Area College. When I was a little girl, I always wanted to grow up and play volleyball, and I was lucky enough to be on varsity almost every year.” Copeland is a very successful volleyball player and is full of passion. She isn’t afraid to dive for a ball. She has decided that as much as she loves the sport she will not continue volleyball in college so she can focus on studies.

Multiple Teams · What’s Trending: This Year is West’s Year


Off season training for future sports are beginning now. Pre season training helps you get in shape and helps coaches get a head start of whom is possibly coming out for the season. Boy’s Basketball pre season started last week. In hearing about pre season, former DHS boys basketball player, Brenden Kirby tweeted

 

“Hope no one is sleeping on @Austin_West 28 this year… kid is the real deal!!! Gonna have a breakout year!!!“

 

Austin West is a senior and has played basketball since his 8th grade year. He has been on varsity since freshman year and with his high dedication and amazing athleticism, there is no doubt he will be on varsity another year. He started every game his junior year. West is the prime example that if you put in extra work, you can be successful. We all wish him luck during preseason training and we can’t wait to see him out there on the court this year.

Boys Junior Varsity Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer · Chalk Talk with Coach Reiser


Coach Reiser and Shaun Brooks (11)
Coach Reiser and Shaun Brooks (11)

 

I had the chance to interview Boys Soccer Coach, Nate Reiser, about his past experiences with the sport:

Q: At what level did you play soccer at? And how did you use your past experiences playing soccer to help with your coaching?

 

A: I played college soccer at York College in York, NE. It was in NAIA. I began playing at age 6. I had some coaches that were just parents, but I also had some that knew the game. I listened to both. Sometimes a dad of one of my teammates was able to describe the game in a way that helped me understand. I think being immersed in the game helped my coaching. Growing up, I played the game, but I also watched top players on TV, watched videos on skills, and studied other teams when they practiced. I still go to a soccer complex and watch 3-4 teams workout to learn new drills and ways to teach.

Thank you Coach Reiser for letting me talk to you and good luck to the soccer team this season!
