Bulldog football trio college bound

Rebholz also had an opportunity to attend the Air Force Academy, but he felt the Coast Guard Academy offered him the best opportunities athletically, academically and in his military career.

“I had a choice between Air Force and Coast Guard and Coast Guard really is going to pay off for me in the long run,” he said. “I can pick my job after I graduate and I’m always going to be on a coast in the United States. I’ll never be stationed out in the middle of nowhere.

“I’ll never go to war and I’ll always be in a beautiful port city. And it’s like a 97 percent job satisfaction in the Coast Guard.”

As a linebacker and defensive back Rebholz was in on 130 tackles for Crestview last season, but he said he’ll get a first look on offense when football practice starts at the academy.

“They told me I could start off playing any position I wanted,” he said. “I asked them about running back, linebacker, corner, safety. They said wherever you want to go you pick.

“They said if we need you in another position, we are going to move you there, but I think starting out I’m going to go out and try running back.”

There is no doubt that Reed will be a running back at Central Florida. At times this season he was the Crestview offense as rushed for more than 1,600 yards. Add another 900 plus yards he gained his junior year and Reed easily gained close to 2,600 yards in his two years as the Bulldog starting tailback.
