Reddic to play for Texas State
Kilgore running back Frank Reddic, who twice set the Bulldogs' single-game rushing record this season, has committed to Texas State to continue his football career.
Reddic was a workhorse for a 9-3 Kilgore team that advanced to the Class 4A Division II Region II area round before falling to Ennis. In Kilgore's first-round game against former district rival Marshall, Reddic carried 53 times for 347 yards and three touchdowns.
"I think as far as carrying the load, he kind of took the same work load that Keith (Gilliam) did back in the '04 (state championship) year," said Kilgore head coach Mike Vallery. "He reminds you a whole lot of a power runner like Keith Gilliam. He does a great job in pass protection, a great job as a receiver and as a runner. He's just a pleasure to coach every day."
Reddic finished his senior season with 2,024 yards and 22 touchdowns on 335 carries for averages of 27.9 carries per game and 6.04 yards per carry. The playoff performance against Marshall followed Reddic's previous school record-setting display versus Whitehouse in the eighth game of the season. Reddic had 44 carries for 334 yards and four scores in the win.
