UVA Football: Joe Reed named ACC Specialist of the Week

Joe ReedUVA wide receiver Joe Reed has been named the ACC Specialist of the Week for games played through Sept. 8.

This is the third weekly accolade for Reed in his career and first of the season

Reed (Sr., Charlotte Court House, Va.) had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the second quarter of UVA’s 52-17 wins vs. William & Mary. That is the longest return in the ACC this season and he became the first (and only) conference player to run a kickoff back for a score this season. Reed also led UVA’s offense with four receptions for 58 yards, including a 40-yard TD catch to open the team’s scoring.

His return tied the program record for longest kick return for a touchdown. He is the fourth Cavalier to return a kick 100 yards for a touchdown and first since Marquis Weeks in 2004 against North Carolina. Reed extends his UVA career record for kick returns for a touchdown to four.

With two kick returns for a TD in 2017 and one in 2018, Reed is the only UVA player to return a kick for a touchdown in three separate seasons.
