WINDSOR (WBNG) -- Windsor senior Ethan Reed signed his national letter of intent Wednesday afternoon to continue his football career at the University of New Haven.
Reed plays baseball, basketball and football at Windsor.
He played his first season on the varsity football team his junior year, rushing for 12 touchdowns and passing for 16.
Reed earned all-division honors, was named to the Elite 24 all-star team, and was named third-team all-state after his junior season.
With no football this past fall, Reed said the recruitment process was difficult but when he heard from New Haven, he knew it was the right fit.
"Having the opportunity to finally find a school that was the right fit for me, is definitely a sigh of relief," said Reed. "With everything going on it was really a hard struggle to find what school to go to. Finding the visits finding the opportunity to find the college and coaches and everything I've been looking for. I found it, and I'm so grateful."
With high-risk sports approved to begin, Reed is looking forward to the upcoming football season, especially without the pressure of recruitment.
"Going out there and trying to have fun and compete but try to impress coaches as well, now that I don't have that anxiety anymore I have the opportunity to just have fun and play with the boys," he said.
Reed will study criminology at New Haven, and hopes to have a career working in national security.
