Reid is obviously pleased with life as a Georgia high school coach, but don't get it twisted. The man is proud of his South Florida roots. He will quickly tell you that he was born in Miami, raised in Fort Lauderdale and attended the University of Central Florida.
You can guess what came next.
"I graduated from UCF," says Reid. "I am a National Champion, you better believe it! I got my T-shirt and everything. I went to THE U-C-F !"
OK, I get it, but that's in Florida.
The next championship celebration that Reid hopes to be associated with will be at Griffin and the Bears will take the next step on that path this Friday night when they visit (2-2) Upson-Lee. Reid will remind his team to stick with what has been their theme for this season.
"We hashtag and break the huddle on ‘Bear Down,’" says Reid. "It simply means imposing your will on the other team, doing the things that we want to do as a program and playing good solid Griffin bear football."
Don't forget that Football Fridays In Georgia will debut this Friday. It will be Milton at Roswell and it comes your way at 7:30 p.m. on the great GPB!
