Senior defensive lineman Caraun Reid, who will be competing in the 2014 Senior Bowl next month, became Princeton's first two-time First-Team All-America honoree in 20 years when he was named to the 2013 All-America team by The Sports Network.

Reid, a finalist for the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, was a co-captain who led Princeton to its first Ivy League championship since 2006 this past season.

A returning All-America, Reid led the league in sacks in Ivy games (5.5), and he finished second to teammate Jason Ray in tackles for loss in Ivy games (9.0). A three-time first-team All-Ivy League honoree, Reid overcame double- and triple-teams all season to become one of the league’s most disruptive forces on the line.

He had a team-best five quarterback hurries, and he recorded his first career interception in the victory over Cornell. Reid had at least one tackle for loss in seven of the team’s final nine games, and he helped Princeton rank among the Ivy’s top two in both total defense and rushing defense.

He ended his career in brilliant fashion, recording four tackles for loss and three sacks in the season finale at Dartmouth. He is the fourth player in Princeton history to be named to the All-Ivy first team three times, and the first since Matt Evans (1996-98).

Reid is the first Princeton player to earn first-team All-America honors twice since all-time rushing leader Keith Elias, who was named All-America in both 1992 and 1993.

Since 1950, only six Princeton players have earned back-to-back First-Team All-America honors: Dick Kazmaier (1950-1951); Frank McPhee (1951-1952); Cosmo Iacavazzi (1963-1964); Stanislaw Maliszewski (1964-1965); Keith Elias (1992-1993) and Reid (2012-2013).
