Ed Reed selected to ACC Football Legends Class

Stefan Adams
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Former University of Miami safety Ed Reed was among those all-time football greats, college national champions, and Super Bowl winners highlighting the 2018 Atlantic Coast Conference Football Legends class announced on Thursday.

Reed, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame and the Miami Football Ring of Honor, holds the school record for career interceptions (21), career interceptions returned for touchdowns (four), career interception return yards (389) and single-season interception return yards (206 in 2001). Reed led the Hurricanes with nine tackles (six solo) in Miami's 37-14 victory over Nebraska to claim the Rose Bowl and the Hurricanes' fifth national championship. He was a consensus All-American in both 2000 and 2001, was named the 2001 National Defensive Player of the Year by the Football News and was a finalist for the 2001 Jim Thorpe Trophy, as well as a Bronko Nagurski Trophy semifinalist.

A Louisiana native, Reed went on to star in the NFL for 12 seasons, including 11 with the Baltimore Ravens. He was a nine-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, earning a Super Bowl ring with Baltimore in 2013 and leading the NFL in interceptions on three occasions.

This year's class will be honored during the ACC Night of Legends presented by the Charlotte Sports Foundation at the Charlotte Convention Center, on Friday, Nov. 30, and during the on-field pregame festivities at the 14th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game, set for the evening of Saturday, Dec. 1, at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium.

Tickets to the 2018 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game go on sale Tuesday, Oct. 2.

Digging Roman Oben up out of nowhere so they can honor his "All D1A Independent First Team" accomplishments instead of just putting Lamar Jackson on there is peak ACC. Motherfuckers should put Ron Cherry in there too.
