Know Your Blazer: Reise Collier
Updated: Feb 11
One of our new Southside Dragons...Please welcome Reise Collier!
Hometown: Oklahoma City, OK
High School: Carl Albert HS
High School: Collier was rated a 3-star according to 247Sports out of the 2020 high school class. At Carl Albert HS he was a 4 time state champion as well as an Oklahoma 5A defensive player of the year. He was First Team All State as well as first team All Big-City (Oklahoma City). Collier completed his senior season with 140 tackles and two interceptions as Carl Albert won its fourth consecutive Class 5A state title. In his junior year he recorded 175 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions
College Offers: Out of high school the only Division 1 offers he held were Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Howard. Initially he had chose to go to the University of Central Oklahoma but Reise changed his mind and chose Coffeyville Community College of Kansas. If you know anything about JUCO football than you know the name Coffeyville CC. It has produced many Division 1 prospects and continues to send players on to the next level. Its easy to see why Reise chose the school especially with his asperations of playing at the Division 1 level.
Coffeyville CC Career: During his time at Coffeyville CC Reise played in 14 games and recorded 71 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks. He had 2 fumbles forced and 1 recovered. When you watch the highlights you can see that Reise really has a nose for the ball and will bring some speed to the LB room! Check out his Hudl highlight page to see some of his video.

Collier received offers from North Alabama, New Mexico, Incarnate Word, and UAB. He chose the Blazers in December of 2021.
Coming into the year we knew that we had a good LB core but with players like Reise Collier coming in it should make that group better. Look for Reise to make an impact during spring camp this year and push for some playing time come this fall! Reise comes to us with what we believe is 3 years of eligibility left. Go Blazers and welcome Reise to the Southside!
