Scout Trout is elated to welcome Coach Carey Reid to the Scout Trout All-American game, as our head defensive coordinator and technique guru! Playing for Steve Spurrier and even have played along side the hall of fame QB, Phil Simms during his collegiate days. The most impressive part about Reid's resume to Scout Trout, happens to be his stellar resume building young men, while helping them get to the mountaintop of football (College/Pro). He exudes the qualities needed to be a outstanding coach at any level and I am happy to bring him on our elite coaching staff, as he brings a vast knowledge of the game of football, education and recruiting to our team. Check out Coach Reid's outstanding resume as a player and also as a coach!
