He now joins Micah Latin as the only two LCU football players to be honored as the Defensive Player with the other three all being on special teams.

Reed, a senior from Basile, Louisiana, led the Wildcats with 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, & two quarterback hurries in a lopsided win over East Texas Baptist. The 2.5 tackles for loss tied a career-high & the 2 hurries were also a new career-best.

The 5-foot-11 Exercise Science major ended the night with 7 tackles, four of which were solo stops, 2.5 tackles for loss, two QB hurries & 1.5 sacks.

Reed along with his teammates will try to start SAC action with a dub on Saturday at 6 p.m. opposite the Buffaloes of ABC with fans encouraged to ORANGE OUT Wildcat Field.
