Reeder added to Buchanan watch list: Delaware senior linebacker Troy Reeder was named to the Buck Buchanan Award Watch List, given to the country’s top FCS defensive player.

“It’s certainly humbling to be recognized among the top defensive players in the country, but it’s really a testament to my teammates and coaches for pushing me and putting me in this position,” Reeder said. “Right now though, we’re all focused on winning. That’s all we want to do. We just want to win.”

Reeder currently leads the CAA and ranks seventh in the country with 96 tackles on the year. He also leads the league and ranks in the top-15 nationally in tackles for a loss with 12.0 this fall. He has registered double-digit tackles in six of the nine games for the Blue Hens.
