Right on Que: Versatile Bulldog playing best football of career with scouts, dad watching closely
“Most colleges are coming in saying you need to play defense, they want you as a rover (safety) or (weakside linebacker),” he added. “So I made the position change to be able to play college football.”
According to Bulldogs coach Joe Glass, this transition will make Reid a highly coveted prospect.
“We didn’t play him at safety for the last few years, but Que’s a freak; he’s an absolute monster,” Glass said. “Que is going to be a Division I strong safety.”
Bulldogs’ title defense off to seamless start
Out of this large group of players, one that many will have their eye on is senior running back/strong safety Que Reid, one of the most athletic players in the county. Reid missed most of 2016 with injury.
“It’s good to see him back out there at full strength,” said Glass. “He’s stronger than he was last year. He’s weighing more than he did last year.”
Before this season, Reid was used primarily as a running back or a slot receiver for the Bulldogs, but his athletic prowess has garnered the attention of Division I colleges.
However, most of these schools see the senior as a strong safety, so this, coupled with the fact the Bulldogs have more of a need in the secondary, will lead to Reid spending much more of his time on the defensive side of the ball.
First Steps: Official football practices begin Monday
“This is the group that I started with, and I’m definitely excited to see all the work these kids and coaches have put in to turn this program around,” said Glass, who also lost a starting quarterback in Josh Dale (UNC Pembroke).
“This group of seniors is special to me, and I’m ready to get out there with them.”
