#7: Dominique Reed 52 Yard TD vs LSU
Yep that’s right, speed part 3! I don’t know how many times I can put it on here before you realize that speed most definitely kills. But I promise this is the last time I’ll have Dominique on here…or is it?
Okay yeah it totally is. Dominique is just one of those players that comes along and makes a big play every chance he gets. He’s become a true blessing to have on our offense, and I’m already looking forward to seeing how he performs for the 2016 season.

Up above we have our #6 play which was Dominique’s 52 yard touchdown in the one sided Battle for the Golden Boot in Baton Rouge. Arkansas needed the momentum to get the ball rolling on offense, and out of nowhere we had Dominique in the endzone. This is the greatest example of Reed making something out of nothing. Brandon Allen only threw it about 4 yards, and all Reed had was Tiger defenders in front of him. After a quick juke move and getting to the sideline, Dominique was able to circle around every single one of them with what might be the most spectacular acceleration you will see out of a receiver.
Out of the three, this play got the highest on this list because it was the moment Reed became Speed in everyone’s eyes. In the nine games that Reed has appeared, he has scored 6 touchdowns and recorded 520 receiving yards. Dominique was expected to contribute to this Razorback offense this year, but nobody really expected the JUCO transfer to perform the way he did. Thank you Dominique Reed for all that you have done in 2015.
