Hall of Fame

Mike Reed

A native of Ruston, Mike Reed first drew our community's attention as a great high school football player on Ruston High's 1941 state championship team...He arrived at Tech in 1942 and was here for one year before going into the service for two years. He then came back the Tech from 1945 through 1947 and made All-American as an offensive and defensive lineman in 1946 and 1947. His finest hour came in a 7-6 upset of Ole Miss in 1946 for which he later was named Outstanding Player on its all-opponent team by Ole Miss players.
