Sterling, CO -   Coach Eddie Trenkle is excited to announce the signing of Poudre High School guard Lake Reed.  Reed is a 6’4” combo guard that can play multiple positions and has a chance to develop into a nice student-athlete.  This past spring Lake participated in the prestigious All Star game, “The Show,” which recognizes the premier high school player in the state of Colorado.

Lake averaged twenty three points, eleven rebounds and four assists for the Impalas this past year.  “Lake’s overall skill level and basketball IQ really stuck out to me during the recruiting process,” explains Head Coach Eddie Trenkle, “Coach Hawes at Poudre has done an amazing job developing Lake into a complete player.  Lake’s ability to shoot and handle the ball, get his teammates involved and guard any position, will make his transition to junior college basketball smooth.”

“They have a history of turning players out and pushing people to get to the next level,” Reed said, regarding signing with Northeaster. “I feel like NJC is a great place to start. The Number One thing to me is their focus on winning.” Reed said he is excited to join the Plainsmen and push himself to a whole new level.”
