RB Reggie Spearmon from Grand Valley State University had a very productive college career and helped Grand Valley win this year's Division II National Championship. Spearmon ran for 3,847 yards and 48 touchdowns in his illustrious career and carried 291 times for 1500 yards, 21 TD's and 32 receptions for 309 yards and 3 TD's in his senior season.
"Winning a Nations Championship felt great since we loss the season before, I will miss playing with those guys since we had been together for four years, but now it is time to more on," said Spearmon. "I did my damage in college, now I want to get a chance to play at the next level."
Spearmon is not a very big running back. Infact, he is only 5-9 and around 200 pounds, but he is quick and will make people miss. In a recent work out Spearmon ran a 4.46 in the 40 while having a 32'' vertical jump, benching 225 – 18 times.
"I think my assets is my ability to make people miss, I'm a slashing type running back but I love to run between the tackles," Spearmon explained. "The guys I most pattern my game after are a mix between Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith. Barry because he had the ability to make people miss, and Emmitt because he will lower his head down and get the tough yards. I love to run inside the tackles and the guards, ever since high school."
Spearmon is a player who is a great receiver and run at the running back spot and the Grand Valley's Pro Day in March lined up wide for the Atlanta Falcons scout and caught everything that was thrown his way.
"I can catch the ball out of the backfield and also pick up blocks and blitz in pass protection," said Spearmon.
Spearmon doesn't care where he get a chance to play next year he just want to get an opportunity in a training camp.
"Playing in the NFL would be a dream come true, just getting a chance would be a dream come true," said Spearmon.
The teams that where at Grand Valley State Pro Day in March to watch Spearmon and the others work out where the Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers, and the Philadelphia Eagles.
