Mt. Pleasant’s Reece Coffman Signs on to Golf at SCC

Mount Pleasant, IA- Another Panther will be donning the red and black next year as Reece Coffman signed his Letter of Intent to golf at Southeastern Community College (SCC) next year. Fellow Panther, Nate Dismang, announced his decision to golf at SCC back in December.

Coffman had the third best 18-hole average last season at a clip of 94.17 with the second-best 18-hole low of 84. The senior talked about how college athletics was always a desire after figuring out he was superb golfer, and he will get his chance at SCC,

SCC was like my first choice because I wanted to, like, get Community College out of the way because I just want to get used to like the college feel and it’s closer to home so I can get some of my general education stuff out of the way before I move on to a bigger college.”

Coffman heads into the season as one of the leaders and he credits head coach Robert Zeglen with his development,

I mean, Rob has been a great coach. He was there for Young Guns and it’s nice having someone who you’ve known for a while to help coach because then you’re very familiar with how he teaches you and everything. He’s a good guy. He always helps with what you need and it helps you move on to be a better golfer and a greater golfer.”

The Panthers are looking to improve upon their 4th place finish at the Southeast Conference meet from last season, but the senior is putting no added pressure on himself,

Having fun is a good one, but obviously since next year I got to do really well, this year I’m thinking hopefully I can shoot low and play great golf this year. Have a great mindset going into college.”

Coffman plans on studying to become an Elementary School Teacher.

The Panthers hit the greens on Monday, April 1st, in their first conference meet at the Fairfield Golf and Country Club.
