The father of top running back, Reggie Bush knows the value of a college education and he is going to make sure his son gets one.
“He could stop playing football tomorrow and I would not care,” Lamar Bush said. “His ability in the classroom and getting good grades is incredible.” Reggie Bush carries a solid 3.93 grade point average. He won’t settle for B grade at any time.
The number of schools under consideration from his scholarship list will be reduced some time in the near future. The list includes about every major football program in the nation.
“We are going to narrow it down,” his father said. “I have a cousin who is going to help out (to narrow down the list).” His cousin is former Washington Huskie and pro football player, JC Pearson.
Dad has a favorite college for his son.
“I like Washington,” he said. “But to me for education, it would be Stanford as for its education.”
Mr. Bush says that his son “really likes Stanford.”
“He talks about Nebraska and Miami.”
Bush is 6-foot-0 and 185 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. Bush has good strength with his 290-pound bench and his 400-pound squat.
Bush had a great junior season. He rushed for 2,200 yards, scored 34 touchdowns and accounted for 204 points. His average run per carry was in excess of 12 yard. He broke his conference’s single season rushing record and total point average.
For his performance last season, he was named as his conference’s player of the year. He was named first-team all-state and first-team all-CIF too.
