Virginia football’s Albert Reid ready to celebrate first Father’s Day with new son

Ayden Reid born May 30th

Father’s Day is Sunday (go buy a card), so we wanted to share a great story from ESPN: UVA running back Albert Reid’s experience in his first few weeks as a new dad.

Virginia running back Albert Reid will enter the 2016 season with a little more responsibility on his hands. And it's much more time-consuming than his grad school classes.

The former graduate transfer is in the infancy of fatherhood after son Ayden was born on May 30. The former Maryland back has found new life with a new life of his own.

"The day he was born was probably the best day of my whole life; just having to hold my own son and being able to call him my own son," Reid told earlier this week. "When he smiles, it's like the greatest thing to me."

The whole thing is definitely worth a read. Case in point: a great picture of the new little guy.
