Reid looking to lead Dale in 2012

Posted: Updated:

CHESTER, VA (WWBT) - Thomas Dale saw a successful 2011 season campaign end in the playoffs, getting shut out at the hands of Hermitage. The Knights believe they have the skill position players that will keep them from ever having a goose egg on the scoreboard in 2012.

Dale will rely on D.J. Reid, a do-everything slash-type player, who will line up at running back, wide receiver and quarterback.  Dale head coach Kevin Tucker believes that as a rusher, he has the strength of the #1 RB in the state (Hermitage's Derrick Green) and the speed of the #2 RB in the state (Bayside's Taquan Mizzell). But Tucker says that Reid has a great team-first attitude, and doesn't mind moving to whatever position he needs to lead Dale to wins.  Reid has whittled down his college choices to Virginia Tech and South Florida, and may pick between the two after he makes his official visits before the season starts.

The Knights also returns junior receiver CJ Reavis, and defensive stars Matt Saunders and Tekeiron Booth, but they have just 16 seniors on their roster.

It has been a rough start to the camp - a virus ripped through the team that left them at about 50% until this week.
