Cullen Reed’s playing career at Dawson County may have ended, but the awards keep coming in for the graduating senior who totaled 1,419 career points in a Tiger uniform. Reed was recently named to the 2017-18 Georgia Athletic Coaches Association All-State Boys Basketball Team. “It’s definitely an honor because there’s a lot of players in the state that are probably a lot better than me,” Reed said. “So just to be mentioned as one of the top (players) just means a lot. I’m really thankful for all my teammates and coaches because there’s a lot that goes into practice and everything and that’s the only reason I got to this point. “It’s definitely an honor, but it definitely wasn’t just me. It was my teammates and coaches helping push me along the way, but it’s really nice to see how it all kind of paid off in the end.”
