College Coaches: If you’d like his contact info please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me @lemminginsider.
Simeon’s 2018 S/WR Dominique Reed is back after an injured junior campaign and is ready to impress his senior season. We talked his offseason work with Midwest BOOM, school’s he’s been in touch with and I also got coach Dante Culbreath’s thoughts on Reed.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 155 lbs
LPI: What are doing this offseason to get ready for the season and take your game to the next level? Did you play 7on7 this year or were you in any other sports?
DR: Weight room is probably where I have put in the most time. I played 7on7 with Midwest Boom. We had a great season and finished 2nd in Nationals at Florida. I also ran track this offseason.
LPI: You currently hold one offer from Winona State. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
DR: Work ethic and competitiveness. No one will out work me. I feel that you can never get complacent with where you are there is always room for improvement. Competitiveness is just between each other or in practice that’s how you get the most out of your teammates you pushing them and them competing back.
LPI: Besides Winona State, which schools have shown serious interest in you?
DR: Minnesota State Moorhead is the only school I can say I feel a serious interest from but there are multiple college coaches that have reached out to me recently just waiting to see where it goes.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits set?
DR: Winona State was my first visit this year. I could have taken more but it was the first one where before I took the visit I felt something would come out of it. I do not have any planned at the moment.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Jayden O’Neal – He plays MLB at my school and is really a total package defender. He is the leader and voice of our defense.
Jason Kimber – He is an edge rusher, great size, great speed. Runs track as well. He is just a very good player who can play hand in the dirt or stand up.
The Defensive back group: Rashaun Lee, Kenneth Moore, Trevone Kitchen. They all have great speed, coverage, and instincts. All overlooked and use that as a sort of fuel and drive that keeps them going. They don’t have the most film but we, as a group, are looking to make a big impression this year.
Honestly I could go on and on. I love all of my teammates and they are some of the most hardworking and talented kids I know.

“Dominique is a very mild manner student athlete that just does what he’s asked to do. A ‘yes coach no coach’ kind of guy. The ones you love to coach.”
