Reid joined the Bombers training schedule in late January as part of the elite NAB AFL Academy program.  
 
Scott told reporters at a press conference at the QEO he’s a “very highly credentialed player already”.

Scott said there’s nothing like getting out to the regions and getting involved with the community.
