Reid was one of 20 named to the Watch List for the Buck Buchanan Award, which is presented by The Sports Network to the outstanding defensive player in the FCS following the regular season. A 2012 All-America honoree and 2013 Preseason All-America selection, Reid was the lone Ivy Leaguer placed on the Watch List.
Both Reid and Gaffney were also honored by both the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) and Beyond Sports Network (BSN). Reid was placed on the CFPA Watch List for defensive linemen, one year after earning a 2012 CFPA Defensive Tackle Award. Gaffney, who earned two spots on the 2013 All-Ivy League First Team (cornerback and kick returner), was named to the 2013 CFPA Kickoff Returner of the Year Award Watch List.
Both players were also named to the BSN Preseason All-America Team.
