Tribute to Coach Billy Reed

Prior to Tuesday's nightcap at Brandon, there was a special moment of silence for former Middleton and Hillsborough coach, Billy Reed, who passed away in December (click here for a link to our story on the coaching legend).

Then Mr. Reed's daughter Dori Reed Blanc threw out a ceremonial first pitch in honor of her father.
