The Spring League named Reece Horn player of the week for his outstanding performance in this past weekend’s game, where his Linemen played the Aviators.
When asked about what this award means to him, he had this to say: “It’s really just a product of all the work around me. It starts with the Oline, the other receivers, running backs, and of course big 10, our quarterback Ryan. I’m really just a moving piece to the puzzle, and we’re all doing our job, and it’s an honor no doubt, but I’m already looking forward to week 6 against the alphas and putting on another big game for my team.”
He spoke on his time with TSL so far saying, “My time here so far has been great. It’s my first season with TSL, I’m pleasantly surprised with the talent level, and yeah, week in week out it’s been a grind. I really like playing for Hal Mummee in the Air Raid offense as a receiver with a chance to get a lot of completions, get a lot of touches, and help my team win.”
He went on to talk about how the team has grown closer together over the season and how the relationships formed are important. “It’s been great bonding with Ryan Willis, the other receivers, our O-line, and our running backs, getting to work with our defensive guys and our specialists its been great. This team is really gelling and doing it at the right time. My experience has been very good.”
Hailing from the University of Indianapolis, Reece had nothing but good things to say about his time with the Greyhounds “Whenever I talk about U of Indy I have to give a huge shoutout to my Quarterback Connor Marcel. We actually played high school ball together and then both got scholarships to U of Indy. We both redshirted, so we spent nine years playing ball together, developed a really good connection, and he’s been a key to a lot of my success… We won a lot of games thanks to a lot of leadership from our coaching staff Coach Keepers, Coach Bartolomelo great coaches but even better men. My time there was great and I couldn’t thank them enough for what they allowed me to do as a person and as a receiver prepping me for the next level.”
To all the scouts and teams watching, Reece had this to say: “You’re going to get a Dog, someone who comes out to work every single day and will take care of the organization on and off the field. I’ll bring my best each and every time. Treat others the way you want to be treated and always be the hardest worker in the room, that’s what my dad said to me growing up and those are the two models I’ve lived my life by. I’m always going to be a guy who comes to play.”
