Reed earns his place in Canton

Canton, OH - Andre Reed, the prolific wide receiver from Allentown, finally got enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday night.  The former Dieruff High School and Kutztown University star had been a finalist eight previous times.  Reed joined linebacker Derrick Brooks, punter Ray Guy, former Eagles defensive end Claude Humphrey, offensive tackle Walter Jones, Giants defensive end Michael Strahan, and cornerback Aeneas Williams in the Class of 2014. Reed graduated from Dieruff as a quarterback, but switched positions at Kutztown to wide receiver, and the rest is history.  Reed was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the 4th round of the NFL draft in 1985, and helped lead the Bills to four straight Super Bowl appearances in the 1990's. Reed still holds the Bills record for receiving yards at over 13,000 yards.  He joins head coach Marv Levy, and former teammates Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith, Thurman Thomas, and James Lofton as Hall of Famers from the golden years in Buffalo.
