Kyc signs with East StroudsburgDuring his high school career Jeremy Kyc helped Sayre get back to winning football.

Now, the Sayre senior will head off to one of the winningest teams in the PSAC to continue his football career as he signed with East Stroudsburg on Wednesday.

Kyc was happy to be part of a group that led the Redskins from 3-7 to 6-4 by his junior year.

Now, he will head off to join an East Stroudsburg team that was 7-4 last year and sports a .597 winning percentage for their history. East Stroudsburg has won 15 PSAC East titles and nine overall PSAC titles.

"One big thing that helped my decision is I went to the homecoming game and watched them play against Bloomsburg," Kyc said. "Bloomsburg was a very good team in the PSAC and I just loved the atmosphere and the coaches are really good there. And, all the PSAC titles they've won doesn't hurt either."

Right when he watched East Stroudsburg play Kyc knew it was the place for him.

"It was a good atmosphere to watch a game," he said. "They do a lot of passing and that's something I'm excited about. I didn't get to catch the ball a lot here because Sayre doesn't throw the ball a lot."

One of the changes for Kyc next year is he likely could see time at receiver or tight end, rather than running back like he was in high school.

"One of the coaches actually said they would like to see me touch the ball and get on the offensive side more," Kyc said. "I said I'd be willing to play anything, but I like offense.

"I don't see myself being a running back there because of my height, but maybe wide receiver or even tight end. I am happy with anything."

For Kyc switching positions will be a change, but he's ready for it.

"I'm willing to sacrifice," he said. "Because of my height I know I'm not going to be a running back, so I have to adjust."

The Sayre standout also knows that the competition in college will be a lot different from high school.

"Everyone is a good football player," he said. "It's going to be tough, but I love the competition. I need it to compete."

One thing that is nice for Kyc about playing in the PSAC is a chance to be near his family.

"It's going to be great," he said. "My sister goes to Lock Haven and my other sister lives in Williamsport so they are going to come see me when we play Lock Haven. My oldest sister went to Edinboro, so my family knows the PSAC very well."
