Ed Reed to serve as Miami’s honorary captain against Notre Dame

Ed Reed was a legend at Miami. He recorded an astounding 21 interceptions for the Hurricanes, 17 of which came in his junior and senior seasons. Reed was on the 2001 national championship team.

He will serve as the honorary captain on Saturday against Notre Dame, which is a fun twist for the 2017 Hurricanes. Reed has also been around the football facilities all week talking to the players.

Miami shouldn’t need much additional fuel given the enormous stakes of Saturday’s game. The Hurricanes have a real shot at the College Football Playoff, and a win over the Fighting Irish would do wonders for their resume.

But it’s still cool to be able to interact with a program legend for the week. Reed hopes to watch his alma mater notch a signature victory.
