Reid joined the Blue Bombers in 2007 and became the feature back in 2008 when Charles Roberts was traded to the B.C. Lions.
He led the club in rushing from 2008-11, including back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns with 1,371 yards in 2009 and 1,396 yards in 2010. His rushing total in 2010 led the entire Canadian Football League, while his 2009 numbers ranked him second to Calgary’s Joffrey Reynolds. Reid was an East Division All-Star in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and a CFL All-Star in 2010.
He currently ranks seventh on the Bombers all-time rushing yardage list with 4,505 yards, behind Roberts (9,987), Leo Lewis (8,861), Willard Reaves (5,923), Jim Washington (5,736), Gerry James (5,541) and Andrew Harris (5,402).
One of Reid’s career highlights came on August 21, 2009, in Vancouver in a win over the B.C. Lions. Reid set the club’s single-game rushing record that night, as he galloped for 260 yards on 26 carries. That total is the third highest in CFL history (Ottawa’s Ron Stewart had 287 yards in 1960; Saskatchewan’s George Reed had 268 yards in a game in 1965).
