Pierre Reedy

Penn State
Security and Risk Analysis


Reedy is the definition of a student-athlete with his outstanding work in the classroom. He has already completed both an undergraduate (security and risk analysis) and a masters degree (corporate finance), finishing with above a 3.6 GPA in both.

In 2020-21, Pierre was named a CoSIDA first team Academic All-American as well as a first team Scholar All-American by the United Soccer Coaches. Pierre is a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar.

He is now working on his third Penn State degree, a bachelor in sociology.


Reedy is a student-athlete of the highest character. He has been a team captain, as voted for by his fellow teammates, for the last three seasons, dedicated to developing relationships with the team to ensure success on and off the field.

Reedy is also a member of Penn State’s Athletic Directors Leadership Institution, where he works with fellow student-athletes and athletics staff to enhance his leadership skills, learn from professionals, and toward a personal leadership philosophy.

He uses these experiences and lessons to implement them back to the men’s soccer program to help build a better environment and culture. Reedy’s hard-work and never-give-up attitude can also be recognized from his ability to come back and play after missing back-to-back seasons with injuries, as well as leading his team during the uncertain times of a global pandemic and a postponed season.


Reedy is a great member of the State College and Penn State community. In February 2020, he was a dancer for THON, Penn State’s dance marathon, a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. As a dancer, Reedy stood for 46-straight hours without sitting or sleeping while interacting with THON children and their families in the fight against childhood cancer.

He organized a one-day soccer tournament fundraiser, resulting in over 200 Penn State students registering to participate and $1,200 fundraised. Reedy has also volunteered for The Acres Project at Penn State, an organization that connects students and the Acres Project to develop new opportunities for individuals with autism.

He always makes the time to sign autographs and chat with fans after games at Jeffrey Field, no matter the outcome of the game, because he knows how much of a role model he is to those younger players.


Reedy had a breakout season in 2020-21, culminating in a career-high five goals scored and four assists added for a career-best 14 total points. For his efforts, he was named to the All-Big Ten first team, All-Big Ten tournament team, and received All-America third team status from the United Soccer Coaches.

He has helped the Nittany Lions reach the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back seasons, as well as a Big Ten Tournament Championship appearance in 2020-21 for the first time since 2011.
