He had a successful career at the University of Alabama, earning first-team All-SEC honors and SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in 2023. The Hoover (Ala.) native came in the Crimson Tide’s 2019 recruiting class and assisted the program to three SEC Championships (2020-21, 2023) and a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2020. Reichard achieved perfection in the 2020 season, making 14 field goals and 84 extra points. He made 22 of 25 field goals last season and all 55 extra points.

Reichard became the most consistent placekicker of the Nick Saban era.

He brought confirmation to every Alabama fan that knew he would make every kick.

The National Football League is getting a reliable leg and his measurements unveiled at the Senior Bowl weigh in. He measured out at 6-feet and 191 pounds with 8 3/8″ hands. Reichard has nearly 31″ arms (30 5/8″) and roughly a 74″ wingspan (73 7/8″).

Several teams are in need of a kicker, and Reichard can be very impactful.
