RoadRunners goalie Reed makes NCAA commitment
The Texas RoadRunners of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that former goaltender Jaeger Reed has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Saint John’s University in the MIAC.
Reed, 21, who played last season in the NA3HL with the ‘Runners appeared in 25 games and held a .904 save percentage. The 6’1/185 lbs. native of Crosslake, MN, also appeared in three games with the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL during the 2019-20 season.
“We are very happy to have Jaeger join our hockey family. He is a great young man that fits in well with our guys. He will have an opportunity to compete in practice to earn time in net while receiving a great education. We pride ourselves in not only recruiting hockey players but also great people like Jaeger,” stated Doug Schueller, Saint John’s Head Coach.
“Jaeger was a great guy to have around last season and worked hard both on and off the ice. We are extremely happy that he chose Saint John’s as his school as it was on the top of his list all last season for academics as well as hockey. Jaeger wanted a smaller school setting for his education and felt that Saint John’s was a good fit. When speaking with Jaeger last week he was very happy with his choice and opportunity to play for the Johnnies. Jaeger is also carrying a 3.88 GPA over the first semester. We always stress to our guys that the better the grades and test scores you have the better the opportunities you may have,” said RoadRunners Head Coach Mike Beavis.
Prior to playing in the NA3HL, Reed spent the 2017-18 season with the Colorado Springs Tigers in the NAPHL.
The RoadRunners work very hard in setting a path to college for their players and believe that every player should have the chance to play at some level after juniors based on educational needs as well as skill level. The entire staff of the RoadRunners would like to wish Jager Reed and SJU Hockey all the best.
