Reed pass

Kyler Reed snares a pass against Penn State during a game at Memorial Stadium in 2012. "I didn't want to be the guy who was stuck on football and wasting my 20s trying to chase a dream," Reed said. "Part of me wishes I would have still, but I knew I wanted to coach and had a lot of things to learn."
