PCC Football Alum David Reed Leads Utah To 15th Straight Win
For two seasons from 2006-2007, All-American David Reed smashed nearly every receiving record for Pasadena City College football. Reed is looking to do the same this season for the University of Utah. On Thursday night, the senior Reed caught 10 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown to lead the nation's 19th-ranked Utes to their 15th straight victory, 35-17, over Utah State.
Reed scored on a 65-yard touchdown pass, catching a slant from quarterback Terrance Cain and speeding up the middle to go the final 50 yards.
The talented wide receiver, orginally from Connecticut, is PCC's all-time receptions leader, single-season receptions leader, and he set a national community college record in 2007 when he caught 111 passes for 1,661 yards in just 10 games.
After receiving a scholarship from Utah, Reed transferred there as a junior last year. He proceeded to play on a Utes team that went undefeated at 13-0, scoring a TD in the team's Sugar Bowl win over Alabama. Reed led the team in kick return yardage during the season and he finished with 25 receptions and 6 touchdowns.
