FROM REID'S HEAD COACH GABE INFANTE
"John is not only the best player I have ever coached, he is also the best young man I have ever worked with. He not only changed the culture of our program with his work ethic, but he had a dramatic impact on our student body with his humility and care for his fellow classmate. We will miss him."
