Reid showed off his playmaking skills on Friday.
The versatile Reid, who has seen time at both wide receiver and tailback during his career with the Seminoles, was one of a few bright spots for the offense.
The unit was dominated by the defense as FSU practiced in pads for the first time.
During 11-on-11, however, Reid made a diving catch of about 25 yards from quarterback Chris Rix. The offense's lone score in eight attempts on goal line drills was a nice fade pass from Rix to Reid in the end-zone corner, beating incoming freshman J.R. Bryant.
"I feel real good. I feel confident," Reid said.
"It seems like all of our hard work is going to pay off and we all worked hard this summer. There are a lot of things I have to sharpen up on and a lot of things the offense has to do better. Chris (Rix) threw some good balls today and it's my job to catch them. I have to get better at route running - technique wise and coverage reading."
Reid is also eager for the start of two-a-day practices on Saturday. FSU's first scrimmage is scheduled for Monday.
"I am very excited about the start of two-a-days," Reid said. "Any day I can get out here, work hard and try to shape up my routes and things of that nature, I am willing to do it."
FSU coach Bobby Bowden also noticed Reid's effort.
"Willie Reid had some nice catches," Bowden said.
"I don't think I've ever seen him have a bad practice. Willie shows up every time at practice."
