Georgetown Prep running back Colin Reynolds rushed 30 times for 253 yards and four touchdowns, including the game-winning four-yard score in overtime, as the Little Hoyas edged Woodberry Forest, 28-25. For his efforts, Reynolds was named the Military Bowl DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week.
“The first time I saw him on film, I said, ‘Dang, he reminds me of someone.’ And it’s Kelvin Bryant,” Georgetown Prep Coach Dan Paro said, comparing Reynolds to the former University of North Carolina and Washington Redskins standout. “He has a glide to him. He’s gotten a lot stronger and he’s starting to do all the little things right. That’s what we worked on last year a lot. His practice habits have really improved.”
At 6 feet 2 and 195 pounds, Reynolds has the size and speed to excel on the football field. He rushed for 1,103 yards and nine touchdowns last season, earning first-team All-Interstate Athletic Conference honors in his first season at Georgetown Prep. Reynolds has taken things to another level this season in helping the Little Hoyas to a 3-0 start.
An outstanding athlete, Reynolds also plays forward on the Georgetown Prep basketball team in the winter and competes on the track team in the spring. His college recruiting is starting to pick up, Paro said.
“He’s been working hard and progressively getting better,” Paro said. “He’s just been Mr. Reliable. He’s been a force, he’s durable and sets up everything that we do offensively.”
