Florida Roots

When Reggie entered Satellite High School, he was an outstanding student who continued to excel in academics.  He maintained a 3.76 GPA which eventually won him an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.


Reggie was an outstanding athlete who was named three years in succession to the Cape Coast Conference Football and Track Teams. In addition to academics and sports, Reggie still found time for extracurricular activities.


During his senior year he was Senior Class Senator and Vice President of the Key Club, which entailed his traveling and speaking at different functions throughout Central Florida.  All these accomplishments were directly responsible for his receiving nominations to the United States Air Force Academy and the United States Military Academy at West Point which he accepted.

West Point

While a cadet at West Point for four years, Reggie continued his stride for excellence, singing in the Cadet Gospel Choir, making the Varsity Football Team as a Running Back his “Plebe” (freshman) year plus running Varsity Track.  His most notable achievement, besides his displayed military leadership ability, was breaking West Point’s Long Jump record of thirty-two years and setting his own record.


In Reggie’s honor, West Point has established a memorial presentation, which is given each year at graduation, commencing in 1981.

A marble bench has been placed along the bank of the Hudson River; a mural painted on the was has a portion dedicated to Reggie. In the library at Grant Hall, Reggie’s name is inscribed.

An Example

Reggie is gone but shall never be forgotten because he firmly planted his footprints into the sands of time, thus causing his memory to withstand eternity.
