Montague QB Cody Kater establishing himself as one of state's best
Friday's victory for Montague added another tally to quarterback Cody Kater's list of wins and accomplishments. Kater, finally playing all four quarters of a game lead his team to a 41-26 victory to keep his team undefeated and in the hunt for another state championship.
"It was good to finally get to take reps in all four quarters because come playoff time I will need to be at my peak of playing good football" said Kater.
The 6-foot-4 and 200 pound CMU commit uses his arm as well as hit feet to keep his Wildcats among the best teams in Division 6. His dual threat ability keeps teams guessing and as of late, the guessing games have turned into many touchdowns and wins for Kater. His knowledge of the game and ability to put everything together makes him a great acquisition for the Chippewa's.
Kater has been to both of Central's home victories against Alcorn State and the Akron Zips. He plans on attending this weekend's homecoming matchup between the Chippewas and the Eagles of Eastern Michigan.
"I have real good time coming to the games and being a part of such a positive atmosphere" says Kater.
Kater who was in contention for a scholarship from Michigan State, had committed to Central after he was told by Mark Dantonio of the Spartans that they were going to go ahead and offer quarterback Joe Bositure. All this happened as Kater was sitting in Coach Dantonio's office, presumably to get a MSU offer.
"I walked out of Coach Dantonio's office and knew I was going to be a Chippewa. I knew before I wanted to play at CMU, but that was the icing on the cake" explained Kater.
After Central Michigan's week two victory over Michigan State, Kater had text messages rolling in saying "good choice/ great decision." Kater looks forward to working with quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian and the rest of the Chippewa coaching staff.
"I'm excited to work with great coaches and play with extremely talented players" says Kater, who will be graduating in May and on the Chippewa practice field come this summer.
