Reid Garners All-America HonorJune 10, 2006 · MT Media Relations
Reid, a junior sprinter from Manchester, Jamaica, garnered the second All-America honor for the Blue Raiders in two days after senior Linnie Yarbrough was seventh in the 110-meter hurdles Friday night. Reid placed sixth in 20.98, his slowest time this year, but it was also his sixth race in four days at the NCAA meet.
Reid is the 42nd different athlete to become an All-American under head coach Dean Hayes and the third this year. Junior Juan Walker garnered the honor indoors in the long jump and Yarbrough on Friday in the high hurdles. Reid is also the first Blue Raider in history to earn All-America honors outdoors in the 200-meters and earned Middle Tennessee's 80th All-America accolade during Hayes' 41-year tenure at the helm of the program.
