PCC's David Reed Makes NFL Exhibition Debut
David Reed, who set numerous school receiving records on the Pasadena City College football team in 2006-2007, played in his first NFL exhibition game for the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night
Reed returned two kickoffs for 40 yards in the Ravens' 17-12 home win over Carolina. Earlier this year, Reed was drafted by Baltimore in the fifth round of the annual NFL Rookie Draft.
A JC Grid-Wire First Team All-American wide receiver for the Lancers in 2007, Reed set the national community college collegiate record for most receptions and yards in a season with 111 catches for 1,661 yards in just 10 games. Reed was named PCC Men's Athlete of the Year for the 2007-2008 athletics season.
In his two seasons at PCC, Reed became the college's all-time receiving leader with 151 receptions for 2,372 yards. In his last game as a Lancer on Nov. 17, 2007, Reed set PCC's single-game record for most catches in a game with 16 for also a school-record 262 yards v. Santa Ana.
Reed earned a major university scholarship at the University of Utah, where he posted the Utes' single-season school record with 81 receptions for 1,188 yards as a senior in 2009. He was 15th in the nation in receiving yards per game. In Reed's first year at Utah, he caught a touchdown pass in the Utes' Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama as Utah went a perfect 12-0 that year.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Reed came to PCC after playing high school ball in New Britain, Connecticut.
