Reeder offensively averaged 17 yards a catch, and seemed to grow into the receiver role as the season progressed. McGuire said he thinks Reeder surprised some people that didn't realize how fast he was.
"What was unique was not his off-the-line speed, but his second or third gear," McGuire said. "His separation speed was pretty amazing. The vertical threat he gave us was huge. He got a lot of yards after contact. His ability after a coach was something we sorely needed."
Reeder's versatility was a calling card since he started on varsity. Reeder frequently moved around defensively to different areas on the field.
He took it to another level this year with his contributions on offense, and it didn't stop there.
"Cale returned kicks, he was a gunner on punt teams, was on our kickoff teams and didn't complain about anything," McGuire said. "His mentality and his practice habits and his personality, he is the same if not more."
Humble and assuming, Reeder is the same with all Yorkville's players, whether they play or not.
He follows the lead of his dad, Chris Reeder, who played football and wrestled in high school at Lisle.
"My dad, he's a hard-hat worker type," Reeder said. "He's always said just go in and do your job, don't worry about what people say, act like you've been there before."
Reeder did just that, leading Yorkville to places it hadn't been in quite some time.
"He's the full package," McGuire said. "How good of a person Cale is is under-appreciated. He was named All-State, and his teammates were genuinely happy for him. Sometimes kids read about themselves and change a little bit. Cale was the exact opposite."
