EASTON, Pa. - Quarterback Drew Reed has been named the College Football Performance Awards’ (CFPA) FCS National Freshman Performer of the Year.
Reed played in eight games in 2013, completing a single season school record 73 percent (132-182) of his passes for 1,887 yards, 17 touchdowns and just five interceptions. He made his first career start at Holy Cross, throwing for 283 yards and five touchdowns while completing the final 21 of 22 passes, a Patriot League record.
“The goal of the CFPA is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football,” said Executive Director Bradley C. Smith. “CFPA recognizes annual, and career award recipients – selected based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.”
Reed finished the season a two-time Patriot League Football Offensive Player of the Week, and three-time Rookie of the Week, guiding Lafayette to the 2013 Patriot League title and the NCAA FCS Playoffs for the fourth time in program history.
