Temple Football Gets Commitment From Andy Reid's Son

Philly.com is reporting that Spencer Reid, son of Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid, has committed to play football at Temple. Reid is a running back/corner who also was being recruited by Delaware. Ironically,  the speedy Spencer says he gets his wheels from his dad's side.

My speed, believe or it or not, comes from my father’s side," said Spencer, who will get time at tailback or play cornerback. "One look at my dad and you wouldn’t think it would come from him, but it does." Then Spencer let out a laugh, "My grandfather, my father’s father, was a track man.

He also said that his dad never pushed him into football, it was his older brothers who did that.

"But people assume automatically that when you’re a coaches son, you’ll play football. I didn’t like football at all when I was younger. When I was five, six, seven, my brothers, Garrett and Britt, they’re the ones who got me out for football. But father never put any pressure on me to play football. It was always about doing something and being good at whatever it was I played. I loved soccer, but I was the kind of kid who was always running into people. My brothers led me to football."

Spencer played on the same prep team as Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Morhinweg's son Skyler, who has committed to Stanford.
