Since the ACC Network launched on August 22nd, Mark Packer and Wes Durham — long time radio mainstays in the ACC — have hosted morning show Packer and Durham from 7-10am, Monday through Friday (it also re-airs from 10-1 for you late risers). The set is covered with ACC paraphernalia (including a replica of the Men’s Basketball National Championship banner given to them by this very blog), and they discuss all things ACC.
Guests frequent the show, and Thursday morning, fourth year receiver and kick return-man extraordinaire Joe Reed joined the festivities. It was fitting to have Reed on this week as he housed his second kickoff return for a touchdown in Virginia’s 48-14 drubbing of the Blue Devils. Here’s a reminder of his heroics:
Reed chatted with Packer and Durham about coming from Charlotte Court House, Virginia, being a country boy, his relationships with Bryce Perkins and Hasise Dubois, and, of course, the Hoos’ upcoming game against Louisville.
Oh, and he declares his excitement about the Yankees not being in the World Series (same, Joe, same).
Check out the full segment here:
Virginia and Louisville kick off at 3:30 on Saturday, and the game will be televised by the ACC Network. Until then, make sure you get voting for Joe so he can retake the lead for the Paul Hornung Award, given to the “most versatile” player in FBS each season.
