Achievements as a varsity athlete: As a Tiger, Ed was a football defensive back and running back credited with fifty tackles and nine touchdowns his senior year. He was named Virginia Prep League’s Co-Player of the Year in 2009. He also broke the school indoor record for triple jump.
Now a safety for the Stanford Cardinals, Ed played in seven games his freshman season, making six tackles for his Orange Bowl-winning team.
Football in his blood: Ed’s dad played for the Virginia Cavaliers and then for the NFL’s New England Patriots and the New York Giants. Currently the elder Reynolds is president of the Virginia Destroyers, one of the United Football League’s newest franchises. After playing football for as long as he can, Ed hopes to follow in his dad’s footsteps to become a sports team general manager.
Best Woodberry memory: “My senior year Bonfire. Knowing that it was my last game with 'Tigers' on my jersey made the moment special. That night was just an amazing experience."
Academic success: “At Woodberry, I learned how important it is to keep a schedule and routine. At Stanford, I always put in at least two hours of work a night, and I always make it a point to meet with my TAs and professors as much as possible—just as I did during the consultation period at Woodberry.”
