Concord's Reid plans to join Havelock's Scott at Tennessee

Published: Sunday, April 20, 2014 at 06:19 PM.

Scott and Reid waged a running back battle in last season’s 3A championship game at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh. Scott ran for 213 yards on 18 carries with three touchdowns — including a state record 96-yarder — in leading the Rams to a 21-13 victory. He was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Reid, listed at 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, ran 42 times for 224 yards and one touchdown in the state title game, earning recognition as Concord’s Most Valuable Offensive Player.

During the 2013 season, Reid rushed for 3,355 yards and 39 touchdowns in leading Concord to a 15-1 record, that one loss being to Havelock.

“I can’t wait to play with Derrell,” Reid said. “We can create a great 1-2 punch. Since that state title game this past year, he and I have gotten closer and closer as friends. I’m sure we’ll keep doing that now that I committed to Tennessee.”
