Biography

FINS FACT
A standout running back and receiver (where he scored 15 touchdowns as a senior) as well as defensive back at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta, Reshad was assigned to the secondary by the Georgia coaches and figures they made the right choice. “I really like to go after the ball in the air, and I like to hit,” Reshad said. “Playing defensive back, you have ups and downs. You get beat sometimes, but then you can come back and make a great play. One of the most important things is not to get beat deep. You always want to keep things in front of you”
