Reese works his way onto field for Jackets

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Former Deerfield-Windsor star Paul Reese is ready to contribute for the Georgia Tech football team this fall.

Reese was originally a receiver and moved to A- back over a year ago and drew plenty of praise from coaches for his play during spring.

He caught a touchdown pass in the spring game.

Reese may not see a lot of playing time on offense for the Jackets but is working on special teams with the kickoff and punt return squads.

The odds are against virtually all walk-ons in college football of seeing any kind of action on the field in games.

Paul Reese says the number one thing walk-ons need to remember is to stay patient.

Paul Reese said. "Definitely coming in as a walk-on, it takes a couple of years to get a look from the coaches. But you just got to keep working hard at practice and they will eventually see if you have some talent."

Georgia Tech opens the season one week from Saturday against Jacksonville State.
