Jacob Reid Signs With Angelo State 04-29-14

It's always nice to see local athletes earn a place with a college team. Rarely do we see it happen where the athlete earns a place on two teams. But that's what happened Tuesday in Wall.

Randy Ward: "Students filed into the Library to see another one of their classmates sign a national letter of intent for college athletics. This time, that student, Jacob Reid, signed two separate letters of intent for Angelo State.

Jeremy Williams: "Jacob will be playing football at Angelo State and also track there, throwing for ASU. He'll be a Ram and he's going to make us all proud."

Ward: "Reid says that competing as a Ram has special meaning for his family."

Jacob Reid: "I think it's a good opportunity to compete at Angelo State, my dad did and I think following in his footsteps is a good deal."

Nina Reid: "Ever since he was a little boy he's always dreamed of playing at Angelo State and being able to be out on the field and dress up like the other guys he's seen."

Ward: "At Wall Jacob Reid earned numerous accolades as an offensive lineman, but when he's at Angelo State he hopes to add another position to his skill set."

Jacob Reid: "I've always thought I'd be really good at the Tight End position so I figured why not see how good I can get at it, if I even will be good at it. It's kind of a curiosity thing."

Ward: "He's also going to be adding events with Track and Field where he's expected to take up Javelin in addition to Discus which he was a Regional qualifier for three years in a row.... James Reid is not only the Track and Field Coach at ASU, but more importantly he's Jacob's father, and Jacob is excited to build on their relationship."

Jacob Reid: "It's always been a dream of mine to compete for my own father. Having him as a coach is more time with him that I wouldn't get if I was going off to a different school. Hopefully one day earn some medals for him."
