A four-year letter winner, he finished his high school career with more than 1,700 points and was named First Team All-County three times and First Team All-State honoree. After being pursued by several leading universities, he attended Georgetown University on full scholarship for 4 years, acquiring a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in 2017.

In 2019 Reggie accepted the position of Graduate Manager for Saint Joseph University’s men’s basketball with Head Coach Billy Lange, who had followed Reggie’s career since high school.
“This is a rite of passage position,” Reggie says, “for many coaches just starting their college or NBA coaching careers.”
He earned a master’s degree is in Organizational Development Leadership with a focus on Adult Learning at SJU in 2021.
“My Hudson Catholic High School experience trained me well for the rigors of college and beyond. I not only had to do well in my studies but spend a significant amount of time most weeks each year training, conditioning, practicing and playing my sport. I learned how much work I would have to put in to be successful. Thank you so much to Tri-County and all the donors. I don’t know if I would be here now if you didn’t help me when I was starting high school. My education opened doors for me that wouldn’t have opened if I had attended another school. I am eternally grateful to everyone at Tri-County for helping me get to the position I am in today.”
