Dominion High School alum DeAndre Reaves was recently signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent. Reaves, a wide receiver and kick returner, was Marshall University's Most Valuable Player as a senior in 2015.

Reaves holds the Thundering Herd record for career return yards (2,548) and enjoyed a breakthrough season at receiver in 2015 - catching 56 passes for 705 yards and four touchdowns.

"That's every kid's dream, to play at the highest level. I would love to," Reaves said of playing in the NFL prior to his final collegiate game.

Reaves played locally in the Lower Loudoun Boys Football League and for coach Karl Buckwalter at Dominion, where he holds school records for rushing yards (5,620) and touchdowns (68).
