Reese Childress is HSU's do-it-all man

October 18th, 2017 - The HSU Cowboys got back on track on Saturday with an impressive victory over Sul Ross in Alpine.

One of the key plays came from former Abilene High Eagle Reese Childress. He returned this punt 90 yards for a touchdown to help HSU take control.

Returning punts isn't his normal job, but the injury to Alex Bell made it necessary.

You can put Childress anywhere on the field, and that fact makes him one of the most valuable players to his team.

"Yeah he's a really really good athlete, so anytime you can take him and say, hey we need you to punt. We need you to return punts. We need you to return kickoffs, play receiver," Jesse Burleson said.

"We might put you in the backfield to snap it to you he just says yes sir and goes and does it at an extremely high level. He doesn't just do the job, but he does it really well, so that's a blessing for our team for sure that he can do different things," Burleson said.

"That's always been my mindset is that ever since I started playing, my dad and the coaches at high school instilled, wherever the coaches need you to play, that's where you'll play," Reese Childress said.

"They do the same thing here at Hardin Simmons, so that's every player's mentality, so wherever they need me, that's where I'll play."

Childress and the Cowboys are headed to Seguin on Saturday to take on Texas Lutheran. HSU is looking for their third straight win over the Bulldogs.
