Teammates Ford & West named All-Western New York

(Continued)

LOCKPORT —

This past year, Reid was named the NFL's Player of the Year for a second consecutive time.
A freshman starter, Reid netted eight goals and added three assists in 2009. A year later, he recorded 15 goals with six assists and last season tallied 16 goals and added eight assists.
Meanwhile, Reid's senior teammates Mike Ford and Jerry West have been named Second Team All-Western New York by the NSCAA.
Ford led the Lions with 23 goals — including four game-winning goals — and added eight assists, earning a spot on the First Team All-NFL Team.
“Michael is an intense player. He has the tendency to be at the right place at the right time and able to finish when presented the opportunity,” Hulshoff said. 
“He also plays midfield when needed. Mike is constantly moving to open areas, expecting passes and scoring opportunities from his teammates. Several of his goals have been headers and others have come off of rebounds.”
West, a center midfielder, scored one goal and had six assists in 2012, spending most of the season controlling midfield and setting up his teammates. West was also named First Team All-NFL.
“Jerry's one of smartest players on the field. He has the knack of spotting an open teammate and sending the ball to him right at his foot,” Hulshoff said.
“Jerry took pride in distributing the ball often to his teammates and is an extremely unselfish player. As a midfielder, he played hard and consistent all year long. He also came back to help out on defense as the team also let in the fewest goals this season. Jerry is a co-captain who never stopped, yet encouraged his teammates all the time he was on the field. He's a consummate team leader.”
