LWC's Brandon Reed set to be Wrestling Graduate Assistant

By Christopher Coombs

Brandon Reed is set to become the newest member of the Lindsey Wilson wrestling staff serving as a graduate assistant beginning in 2021-22, head coach Corey Ruff announced on Thursday.

"I am excited to become the graduate assistant for Lindsey Wilson Wrestling and I want to thank Coach Ruff, Coach Bradbury and Athletics Director Willis Pooler for the opportunity," said Reed. "Both Ruff and Bradbury have helped develop me into the man I am today and thanks to them and countless others I was able to achieve the success I could only dream of before coming to Lindsey Wilson. I am excited about the future and look forward to helping current and future LWC student-athletes achieve their dreams."

Earlier this season Reed became the program's first three-time NAIA National Championship, winning three straight heavyweight titles. He finished his career with an impressive 82-12 overall record.

He is a four-time NAIA All-American and a four-time All Mid-South Conference First Team selection.

"Brandon is the most dedicated and accomplished athlete in program history," said Ruff. "Everyone that has ever been a part of our program will be celebrating this hire, and I imagine the entire Kentucky wrestling community will be happy to learn he's going to be available for them to take advantage of his wrestling wisdom."

"Coach Bradbury and I have been with Brandon for over four years. There is an extreme comfort level there, and his transition into Coach Reed will be smooth. He can already confidently run a practice from a technical/discipline aspect." Ruff continued. "He is motivating, his instruction is on point, and he's eager to learn the intricate details of what happens behind the scenes. Brandon brings such an aura with him. He wants to learn the art of recruiting, and continue placing fresh footprints wherever he goes."

Reed will begin his graduate role next season for the Blue Raider wrestling program.
