College of Charleston student-athlete and former Milford Buccaneer Devon Reed has been tapped as this year’s male recipients of the ExCEL Award for Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year. Now in its tenth year, the ExCEL Awards Program is designed to honor students, faculty, staff, and neighbors for their dedication to excellence and enhancing diversity on campus and in the community. This dedication is displayed through teaching, athleticism, student leadership, departmental support, or commitment to the community.
Reed, a five-foot-10 senior infielder for the CofC baseball team, appeared in 22 contests including three starts as the designated hitter last season for a Cougar outfit that finished the season ranked No. 16 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball, after a spirited run which took the Cougars to their second-ever NCAA Super Regional. As a senior, Reed has made six appearances and is batting .250 with a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage. A native of Lincoln, Del., Reed is set to graduate this May with a degree in Accounting.
