Senior Bernard Reedy was named Second-Team All-America at kickoff return in Phil Steele magazine’s annual college football preview issue.

Reedy ranked 16th in the nation in kickoff returns in 2012, averaging 27.7 yards per return. He also was the national co-leader with three touchdowns off kickoff returns.

Reedy earned All-Mid-American Conference honors at three positions last year and is a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver and Hornung Award as the country’s most versatile player. He made first-team all-league at wide receiver, where he caught 88 passes for 1,113 yards and six scores; first-team at punt returner (11.1 yards per return and one TD); and second-team at kickoff return.

The Rockets will open their season Saturday, Aug. 31, at Florida to face the Gators in their first contest vs. an opponent from the Southeast Conference.
