Kutztown names football stadium for Hall of Famer Andre Reed


KUTZTOWN, Pa. — Kutztown has renamed its football stadium for alum and recent Hall of Fame inductee Andre Reed.

Andre Reed returned to campus on Saturday for the naming ceremony.

Reed played for the Golden Bears from 1981-84. He later spent 15 of his 16 NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills.

The wide receiver played in four consecutive Super Bowls from 1991 to 1994 and made the Pro Bowl seven times.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.

Kutztown’s gridiron is now known as University Field at Andre Reed Stadium. His name appears in huge gold letters on the press box overlooking the home stands.

Reed finished his degree at Kutztown in 2005. It’s a state university that serves about 10,000 students.
