ATLANTA – Georgia Tech cornerback Rashaad Reid, who emerged as of the ACC’s top young defensive backs in 2008, was named to the Sporting News’ All-Freshmen Second Team on Tuesday.
Reid is tied for second on the team with three interceptions. He has been credited with 39 tackles, three tackles-for-loss, two pass break-ups and a fumble recovery. Reid’s fumble recovery came with less than a minute remaining in the win over 16th-ranked Florida State, securing Tech’s win over the Seminoles.
A St. Augustine (Fla.) native, Reid recorded his first interception in his second college game, in a win at Boston College on Sept. 6. He also had interceptions in wins over Clemson and Miami.
