Austin Reed Named GSC Offensive Player of the Week

Sophomore quarterback threw for 380 yards and improved to 14-1 as a starter
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – UWF quarterback Austin Reed was named the Gulf South Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after throwing for 380 yards and leading the top-ranked Argonauts to a 42-36 win over McNeese State over the weekend.

Reed, whose passing yards are tied for the sixth-most in a single game in program history, was 19-of-36 on the day with four touchdowns. The Argos finished with 466 yards of total offense on 56 plays for a school-record 8.3 yards per play.

The sophomore from St. Augustine, Florida had a passer rating of 172.56 and seven completions of 20 yards or more, including a 74-yarder to David Durden that is the second-longest play from scrimmage in UWF history. After one week of play, he ranks fourth in the country in passing yards and touchdowns, while his 20 yards per completion place him sixth.

This is Reed’s third weekly honor from the GSC after earning Freshman of the Week twice in 2019.

UWF (1-0) will return to action this Saturday, Sept. 11 when it plays host to Southwest Baptist (0-1) at Pen Air Field on- campus. The game will kickoff at 6 p.m. and be the first on-campus game in UWF history.
