From a recruiting standpoint Brody ReeseBrodyReese6'3" | DLCentury | 2021StateOR (6-3 295 DT/NG 21’) is potentially the best player ever to come out of Century High School. Last season the nationally ranked 2* standout put up one of the most impressive stat lines in state history from an interior lineman, accounting for 88 total tackles (46 solo), 29 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and 11 hurries.
Reese landed his first two division 1 offers recently from Big Sky Northern Colorado and Valparaiso. All of this said as Brody might be even more well known for his wrestling ability. He is the reigning 6A state champion at 285 pounds, and currently listed as the #9 heavyweight in the nation.
Speaking on his dual sport status Brody says, “It’s hard to compare the two, I love them both equally, the skills are interchangeable and either one helps me with the other. Although I think I could do both in college and be successful, I’m planning on focusing on one and trying to take it to the next level.”
In a few weeks Reese is wrestling for Team Kong, the #1 ranked dual meet team in the country. He is the first wrestler from Oregon ever to be selected.
On the football side of things, the Jaguars are (14-34) over the last five seasons. Brody’s dominance as a junior will guarantee him a consistent double team from opponents heading into his senior year. Every team they play will make someone else other than Reese beat them.
The best way to describe Brody is as a disrupter on the interior. A single lineman will not be able to contain him, so he immediately off sets numbers, immensely helping others on his defense. He currently holds every lifting record at his high school, with a ridiculous 625-pound squat.
Reese earned 1st team all-league honors as a junior and was selected to our Oregon Prep Redzone preseason 6A all-state 1st team as well. Regardless of what sport he ends up playing in college he projects as an athlete that will be wildly successful.
As many know Brody comes from a football & wrestling family, with his father Adam Reese being a highly regarded coach within the state for years. We look forward to following the big man’s progress as the season draws near.
