All-State football team: Midwest City defensive back Ricky Reeves shows what he can do when healthy

RICKY REEVES — Adding 10 pounds of muscle and taking care of himself turned the Midwest City two-way standout from a question mark to an exclamation for the Bombers.

“He made it really easy for me to understand what I needed to do to get better,” Reeves said.

Midwest City head coach Steve Huff didn't give much though to Reeves this season.

“It's steady with him,” Huff said. “We knew for three years exactly what we were going to get with him and he hasn't disappointed. It's not an up and down deal with him.”

What Huff was getting was a smooth, aggressive defender with a strong lower body.

“I'm not going to say his lower body strength is phenomenal but it's not something you see very often in kids his size,” Huff said.

Midwest City running back James Flanders said Reeves was “quiet, but he's always good.”

Another fellow All-State teammate, Zeke Lewis said it was comforting having Reeves playing behind him.

“He just really enjoys shutting people down,” Lewis said.
