Andre Reed: Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction
Kutztown University graduate Andre Reed '05 was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday, August 2, 2014.
Reed's journey to immortality passed through Kutztown University, where he was one of the most prolific wide receivers in small college football history. Reed played for the Golden Bears from 1981-84. He wore number 88, and is the first player in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) history to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
