He’s a Waxahachie High School graduate, a Texas Tech alumnus and a 10-year NFL veteran – and he is proud to call Waxahachie home.

Montae Reagor has many fond memories of Waxahachie and he is especially proud that he had the opportunity to play football for the Waxahachie Indians.

One of his favorite memories while attending WHS was the 1992 state championship football game in which he played as a sophomore.

“I will never forget that season,” Reagor said. “The commitment that the coaches had to the players was unprecedented. It was truly a remarkable year.”

Tonight, Reagor will be the keynote speaker at the annual WHS football banquet. In preparing for his keynote address, Reagor said he plans to focus on the past season and the amazing effort put forth by the team.

He also plans to offer words of support and to encourage those in attendance to “press towards the mark of a higher calling.”

A 1995 graduate of WHS, Reagor attended Texas Tech on a football scholarship and graduated in three and a half years with a degree in exercise and sports science. Entering the league in 1999 as a second-round draft pick, Regaor has had a productive career and has played for the Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts and, most recently, the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 6-foot, 3-inch, 285-pound left defensive tackle is thankful for the education he received as a student in Waxahachie ISD and has expressed his gratitude numerous times for the skills he received both on and off the field.

“Waxahachie helped to develop me into the person I am today,” he said. “The curriculum and the educational resources that were afforded to me as a student gave me a head start and enabled me to be successful in college.”

Reagor also expressed how much he looks forward to coming back home to Waxahachie.

“Waxahachie is my life. My family is here. My friends are here. I will always remember where it all started and where I came from. Waxahachie is family,” he said.
