“Eaton is very good,” Dreitz said. “(The Reds) have got everything – size, speed, talent. I don’t even know how we stayed on the field with them. The kids are playing hard, and I‘ve got a great bunch.”
Dreitz, 48, was born in Denver and graduated from Northglenn High School in 1981. He went on to become an All-Rocky Mountain Conference selection as a senior playing football at Southern Colorado University (now CSU Pueblo) where he earned a degree in physical education with a minor in mathematics in 1986. He currently teaches math and weight training while also coaching football and track for the Beetdiggers.
