Billy Godwin, former East Carolina and Louisburg College Head Baseball Coach
"I hired Matt at Louisburg early in his coaching career and knew within about a month he was going to be a rising star in our business. Matt is a tremendous recruiter, communicator with players and baseball man. He will do great things at West Point."
Tom Slater, former Trenton Thunder hitting instructor and head coach for Staten Island Yankees, GCL Yankees, Auburn and VMI
"Matt Reid is a man worthy of what West Point represents. He will continue to build upon the tradition of Army baseball."
Dave Littlefield, Chicago Cubs scout, former General Manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates
"Matt is an outstanding young college coach and I'm very pleased to hear the news of his hiring. I know he has done a great job since he has been at West Point and Army baseball has a very bright future."
Zach Price, Army second baseman 2009-2012
"As an infielder I had the chance to work closely and learn from Coach Reid throughout my time at Army. He always put in the extra effort to help us improve every day and stressed the fundamentals of the game. Seeing him work so many extra hours and how much he has put into the program is a testament to his tremendous character and work ethic. Today is a great day for Army baseball."
J.T. Watkins, Army catcher 2009-2012
"I am definitely happy for Coach Reid. He is one of the hardest working coaches I have been around. He gained a lot of experience from growing up as the son of a great football coach in Jim Reid and being around a coaching atmosphere his entire life. I learned so much from Coach Reid and wouldn't be where I am today without him."
