Bio

If the Chargers handed out a rookie of the year award in 2012, it likely would have gone to Kendall Reyes, the team’s second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The defensive lineman from the University of Connecticut and tiny Nashua North High School in New Hampshire exceeded expectations in his first professional season.                  

Reyes led the Chargers’ defensive line with 19 quarterback pressures and 15 quarterback hits, and he finished the year third on the team with 5.5 sacks and nine tackles for loss. He recorded his first two NFL sacks against future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning and on Dec. 23 during a road win against the New York Jets, racked up 3.5 sacks, the most by a Chargers rookie in 26 years. Reyes closed out his initial campaign by earning All-Rookie honors from ESPN.com.                             

To those in Reyes’ hometown, his success came as little surprise. As a prep, however, Reyes was a 220-pound wide receiver and not the 300-pound defensive end that he morphed into as a pro. In high school, he scored the first touchdown in his school’s history on an 85-yard kickoff return. He also excelled on the hardwood, starting at power forward for the school’s basketball team and he was one of state’s premier track and field performers. It led him to Connecticut where Reyes added 80 pounds to his wide receiver’s frame and became an All-Big East defensive end who is so athletic that he can complete a running backflip. And when the Chargers drafted him with the 49th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Reyes became Nashua North High School’s first NFL draft pick and the first player from Nashua to be drafted since the Cincinnati Bengals selected tackle Herb Webster in the fifth round of the 1988 NFL Draft.            

Reyes still spends quite a bit of time in Nashua during the offseason. In March, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Nashua inducted him into its Hall of Fame. Reyes spent much of his time as a youth at the Club, where he sharpened his athletic and academic skills. Now he works with the Club to help develop initiatives for today’s youth. A former class president at Nashua North High, Reyes also spends time at his alma mater talking to student-athletes about education and being good community citizens.
