One of the best and most under-appreciated athletes in Colorado is Rangeview DB/WR Elijah Reed. Reed, a 6-3, long, instinctive athlete, had 20 catches on offense, two picks on defense as well as six passes defended. Poised for a big senior season, Reed now can be completely focused on helping Rangeview, under new Head Coach Justin Hoffman, shoot for playoffs, as Reed reports he has picked up his first college offer from South Dakota.
Reed says South Dakota would like him to play defensive back which is perfect for a player born to be a free safety. Reed’s size makes it tough to go over the top, further his smarts allow him to play center field, keeping everything in front of him and breaking up passes as well as filling lanes against the run. Most impressive is a frame just aching to add good weight. Reed, will, in a couple of years, be a scary specimen, patrolling college fields at over 200 pounds.
Reed is very excited about his Rangeview squad and the upcoming season stating, “We are looking really good and we are getting better every day!” Specifically Reed highlights his little brother Aaron, a junior corner and quarterback Braden Cook, another junior, as players to watch this season.
Reed, now with an initial offer is too talented not to add to his offer sheet and another strong season will build even greater college interest.
