When the Rams show up at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA on Sunday, February 13th to meet the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI, Delaware’s own Troy Reeder will be along for the ride.
Troy Reeder plays linebacker for the Rams, and calls Hockessin, DE his home town. He attended Salesianum right here in Wilmington, where he played football against Middletown High School and their own NFL star, Chris Godwin.
After Salesianum, he attended Penn State, before transferring to become a Blue Hen, alongside his brother, according to The OCR.
His dad was also a linebacker in the NFL, known as “Delaware Dan”. He played in the league for 5 years and finished his short stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He attended Christiana High School and then University of Delaware, and now resides back in Delaware.
Reeder entered the NFL draft and went through seven grueling rounds of name calling and never heard his. He eventually went on to sign as a free agent with the Rams, and eventually made the team in 2019.
