Michigan Football: Joe Reynolds earns Community Service award


ANN ARBOR – Michigan recognized fifth-year senior wide receiver Joe Reynolds at its annual Academic Awards Banquet on Tuesday at the Crisler Center.

The school recognized 447 student-athletes with Athletic Academic Achievement awards in nine separate categories.

Reynolds was among seven athletes who received the Rachel Townsend Community Service Award and was the only football player recognized at the event.

He was a graduate of Rochester Adams High School in 2009 and majored in Spanish in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at Michigan.

The Big Ten Conference recognized him with the Distinguished Scholar Award and named him to the Academic All-Big Ten team as a redshirt junior in 2012. Michigan presented him with an Academic Achievement award as a freshman.

During his playing career, he appeared in 27 games and caught seven receptions for 91 yards. He was also a special teams ace for the team. In 2013, he returned a blocked punt for a 30-yard touchdown against Central Michigan in the season opener.
