Josh Reed Biography
LSU’s Josh Reed gave Tiger fans something fun to look forward to on those hot, humid, Baton Rouge nights in Tiger Stadium.
Reed started his football career in Louisiana where he was a two-time Class 3A All-State pick and was selected for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Super Southern 100. Tons of scholarship offers came, but he decided to stay at home and go to LSU.
Majoring in kinesiology, he became one of the most decorated players in Louisiana State history. After spending his freshman year as a running back, he moved to wide receiver and rewrote the SEC record books. He holds the SEC record for receiving yardage in a game (293 vs. Alabama in 2001) and season (1,740 in 2001). He also held the career receiving yardage record with 3,001 yards until 2002. His 3,000 yards receiving made him the first SEC player ever to break the 3,000-yard barrier. Reed also holds the SEC season record for receiving yardage per game (145.0 in 2001) and is second in the career receiving yardage per game (96.8).
To cap off an SEC championship season in 2001, Reed was awarded the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best receiver.
Reed was an All-America pick by a host of outlets including the Associated Press, CNNSI.com, and The Sporting News, and was named to the SEC’s 75th Anniversary football team in 2007.
The LSU legend was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the second round (36th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft. In 2003, he replaced Peerless Price as the Bills' starting wide receiver and caught 58 passes and two touchdowns. He finished his career in Buffalo with 311 catches for 3,575 yards and 10 touchdowns. After becoming a free agent after the 2009 season, Reed was signed by San Diego, but was released before the 2010 season.
