Former Lowndes star Reid signs with Rams


It appears former south Georgia football star Greg Reid is headed to the NFL.

The former Lowndes Viking posted on his Facebook page Sunday that he has signed with the St. Louis Rams.

"At church right now... & just wanna say I'm proud to be in the Rams Organization! God is good...," Reid posted.

Reid spent the first three years of his college career at Florida State, where he became one of the most exciting players in college football.

Reid started at cornerback and excelled returning kicks. He led the nation in punt return average his freshman year.

But the former Viking star ran into trouble, and was dismissed from the team after a violation of team rules.

He transferred to Valdosta State, but never took the field for the Blazers, tearing his ACL in spring practice.

Reid battled back from the injury to perform at the Noles' pro day for the past two seasons.
