PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – This week’s HR Sport Star is former Surry High School star Reggie Diggs, who earlier this week saw a dream come true when he signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins.
Diggs was a team captain at the University of Richmond. This season, he scored 5 receiving touchdowns and over had 900 yards receiving. Diggs is a big target at 6’4″, 200 pounds and has great hands. It will be difficult for Diggs to earn a starting spot since he’s battling with proven players in Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, DeSean Jackson and now the Redskins’ first draft pick in Josh Doctson.
But regardless, he’s getting his chance and for joining the hometown team and you can’t ask for much more than that!
Congrats to Surry County’s Reggie Diggs.
