Effrem is the type of kid that every coach in America dreams about landing; Grounded, focused, solid in the classroom, and just an all around great kid. The Cajun Redzone catches up with Dutchtown HS RB Effrem Reed.

Sudden, Quick, Explosive, Fast, all are very good words to describe Effrem Reed. I have one I like better, Leader. Effrem is the type of kid that every coach in America dreams about landing; Grounded, focused, solid in the classroom, and just an all around great kid. The Cajun Redzone catches up with Dutchtown HS RB Effrem Reed.

Workouts, workouts, workouts. All the new Cajuns are doing them but Effrem is going an extra step.

"I am out of school right now so I get up early every morning and I am working out by 7am. Then on the weekends I do extra workouts. Just trying to do all I can to get better."

One thing the Cajuns will never have to worry about with Effrem is grades.

"I am all set. I graduate Friday and I will be reporting June 6th. I am going to major in Kinesiology and one day I want to be a Physical Therapist. I have been talking to Coach Lovings and Coach Rebowe and they told me to come down there ready to compete right away."

Reed has a message for the Cajun Nation.

"I really think Coach Hud is going to turn this thing around. I feel great about being a Cajun and I feel like this team is going to be something special. I am going to jump in right away and do my part on and off the field. I am going to work hard to be the best I can be."

Effrem Reed was selected to the LSWA's 5A First Team All-State offense. He finished the 2010 season with 1,926 rushing yards and 32 touchdowns on 271 carries. Reed was also named to the Offensive MVP on The Baton Rouge Morning Advocate's All-Metro team for classes 5A and 4A.
