Lockport's Reid is soccer All-American

Teammates Ford & West named All-Western New York

LOCKPORT —  

Lockport High School senior Alexander Reid has been named as one of just 77 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) boys soccer All-Americans.
Reid, who capped off his brilliant career this fall with head coach Jeff Hulshoff's state-ranked Lions, finished with 60 career goals and 30 assists. This past season, Reid netted 21 goals and added 13 assists as the Lions claimed the Niagara Frontier League championship in undefeated fashion.
“Alex is the consummate team player. As a co-captain, he led by example as he was constantly hustling and moving while on the field. He's a motor that keeps on going,” Hulshoff said. “
“One of the best things about him is that besides all that, he never tried to fight and never complained to the refs when he got knocked down hard. He never tried to be a hot dog. He just got up and played.”
Reid finished as the 18-1 Lions' second-leading goal scorer in 2012, including five game-winning tallies, but as Hulshoff noted, “he would always help out on defense and at midfield when necessary.
“One of the fastest players on the field and strong as well, he's very hard to knock off the ball. He ended up No. 6 all-time in goals scored in Lockport varsity soccer history with 60 goals. And he's also in the top 25 in his class academically, so he's well-rounded,” Hulshoff said.
“He's just a great all-around player who'll definitely be missed moving forward. I've had since he was a freshman. It will be hard to replace him.”
Besides his national honor, Reid has also been named NSCAA First Team All-New York State, First Team All-Western New York for a third straight year, First Team All-NFL for a third straight year and was named to the NSCAA All-Region Team, comprised of the top high school soccer players in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
