William, the son of Carol Rodriguez and Randall Reeves showed early promise as an athlete in neighborhood club soccer, little league baseball and Red Barons football. In his freshman year, William scored the go-ahead two-point conversion in a memorable game against cross-town rival, Grosse Pointe North.  During his sophomore season, William started at linebacker and saw action at fullback.  He was chosen captain by his teammates for both his junior and senior seasons.  At Grosse Pointe South William is the career leader in tackles.  He was also named to the AP Division 1-2 All State Football team, captain of the Detroit Free Press All East Team, and member of the Detroit News All-Metro East football team.  He plans to attend the University of Pennsylvania where he expects to pursue a five-year joint bachelor and master of engineering program.  He plans to major in bio-medical engineering and explore opportunities to study nano-technology.    

William has an older sister, Maya Reeves, a recent graduate of The University of Michigan where she earned her Honors B.A. in Latin American and Caribbean Studies and Spanish Language and Literature.  She plans to attend Columbia University Law School.

William said, “Thanks Mom, Dad and Maya for all the support you’ve given me through the years.  I also want to thank my coaches, mentors and, above all, my teammates with whom I’ve shared countless cherished and lasting memories.”
