Penn State Men’s Soccer’s Pierre Reedy Named Senior CLASS Award Finalist

Penn State men’s soccer midfielder Pierre Reedy has been included as one of the finalists for the Senior CLASS Award for 2021.

Reedy is one of 10 male soccer players to be recognized nationally, after the initial shortlist of 30 was cut down to the finalists. Fellow Penn Staters Danny Bloyou and Brandon Hackenberg were among the names on the shortlist.

The Senior CLASS Award is given to one senior or graduate student that has “notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character, and competition” in ten different NCAA sports. Reedy, a sixth-year member of the Nittany Lions, enters his final season with the squad as a captain in the third-straight year.

Reedy began his career at Penn State in 2016, earning Big Ten All-Freshman Team honors, before an injury in the first game of his sophomore campaign saw him sit out for both the 2017 and 2018 campaigns. He recovered in time for 2019, and has been a force on the wing for the Nittany Lions, recording eight goals and 13 assists in 64 total appearances up until now.

Reedy is one of just two players from the Big Ten to make the final list, while Indiana’s Spencer Glass is also in the running.

Penn State and Indiana are currently the two front runners to claim the Big Ten regular season title when the final matches are played on Sunday. Reedy and the Nittany Lions will take on Wisconsin in Madison at 1 p.m. on BTN+. A win there and a Hoosier tie would clinch the title for Penn State for the first time since 2013.
