If at first glance one assumes that Coahoma quarterback Zack Schneider is a linebacker, they wouldn’t be entirely off the mark.
He is. Or at least, he was a linebacker, before necessity forced first-year Coahoma coach Chris Joslin to do some shifting.
Schneider, a running back/linebacker a year ago, has been moved to quarterback/safety in 2018, following the graduation of starter Mason Moore. Joslin, not wanting to subject his QB to an excessive amount of contact, shifted him to safety in the hopes of keeping him healthy.
There’s just one problem: Schneider, a 16-year-old junior, loves contact and asking him to avoid it is almost a form of deprivation.
