Andy Reid’s Son, Garrett, Found Dead In Lehigh Dorm Room

Garrett Reid the eldest son of Eagles head coach Andy Reid was found dead this morning in his dorm room near the Lehigh University campus.

A 911 call was made at 7:11am this morning to the Lehigh police.  The police tried to revive the 29-year old young man but they were unable to do so.

Coach Reid missed this morning’s walk-through, but is said to have asked that the training camp workouts continue.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman made a statement a little over an hour ago: “I have some heartbreaking news to share with you all. It is with great sadness that I tell you that Garrett Reid, the oldest son of coach Reid, was found dead this morning in his room here in training camp. It is a tough morning for all of us in the Eagles family. Garrett grew up with this team, and that makes this news even harder for us to process. Our hearts go out to Andy, Tammy, Britt, Spencer, Crosby and Drew Ann. Coach has spent the morning informing his family. We ask sincerely that you respect the family’s privacy during this time.

Lehigh University chief of police Ed Shupp: “This morning at approximately 7:20 AM an officer received a 9-1-1 call. Unresponsive male at the Sayre Park dormitories. Upon arrival, it was observed attempts were made to revive the individual; they were unsuccessful. The individual, Garrett Reid, was deceased upon the officer’s arrival. There were no suspicious activities. At this time, however, I’ll turn it over to the coroner, who will be handling that part of the investigation.”

  • I swear if any comment below is in regards to
    Who will coach the team?
    how this team will better without him?
    How this is the start of him resigning?
    or any other issue not related to this tragedy then you are a sick, cold hearted individual. Thoughts and prayers to Andy Reid and his family.

  • What a tragedy. My heart goes out to the Reid family who must be hurting right now.

    I am still trying to process the new stories. I have to admit that when hearing of the news I immediately thought of Tony Dungy’s son James who was found dead in Tampa in December 2005 and Joe Philbin’s son Michael who was found dead In a frozen river in January 2012.

    This an awful tragedy. Football seems very secondary at this moment.

  • Wow

  • 18 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead?

    21 Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread.

    22 And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live?

    23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

    2 Samuel 12:18-23

    ANDY, May these words bring you some comfort in your time of grief…

    I can’t imagine anything worst than losing a son.

  • Thoughts and prayers with his family.

  • yesterday i woke up wanting to finally go to training camp, so i called around and ask my boys who wanted to go, i wound up going by myself. While on my way there i was stressing about everything possible in my life so i said a prayer and asked that while i am there i just enjoy every moment of the experiance. It was hot i didnt care, it rained i didnt care all i wanted to do was be around my EAGLES family and i was. My headacches went away and i was in a place of AWE i havent been in years.
    When i got home all i kept telling my wife i loved it so much i was going back this moring by myself. I couldnt sleep and Jehovah Gods spirit moved me to go to church were i havent been in a long time. On my way i checked NFL.com to see what time the Hall of Fame game on and i saw it said Coach reid wont be at pratice today so i turned on the radio and my heart dropped when i heard that Garret Passed away while up there with his father. i felt a empty feeling inside but i was happy i was in a place to send up a heart felt prayer for Coach REID and his family..
    It may not mean much to you about my life but Just being apart of practice yesterday took me out of my pain i was going through and Sundays watching my team play for 4 hours takes me away from alot of stuff you know.. Andy Reid has been a part of my life in many ways by making my team the team no one wants to play. And i just wanted to say this to you all that sometime in ones life we find things to help us cope and the EAGLES does it for me. Training camp was a place of refuge for me yesterday and i almost feel it was for lil Red to. we have a team that does things like no other in the entire nfl and for that we should be greatful, i know i am.

    The NFL already were affraid of this team already saying” they didnt have a answer for our offense” and “we are a desperate team” and that type of team can hurt you. I know these players and us fans love Andy Reid like familiy and if you know like i know we now have something and someone to play for.

    May your spirit rest in peace Garret Reid and go back to the one who gave it to you. And i just hope your spirit will unite a whole NATION OF EAGLES FANS LIKE NO WAY BEFORE!!!!! This year we fight for Andy Reid who gave us so much now we need to unite to be here for him….

    E.A.G.L.E.S EAGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RIP LIL RED YOU REST IN PEACE BRO.. We willl watch over you pop for you…. SMH

  • R.I.P. Garret Reid.

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out the entire Andy Reid & Eagles Family..This is a tragic story and may the strength of their Faith and Support of each other get them thru this most difficult time..God Bless and may Garrett finally be at Peace.

  • May the Reid family and Eagles organization find comfort from within their family and in what ever God they serve and believe be with each of them in this tragic time.

  • So sad … my thoughts and prayers go out to Andy, Tammy, and the entire Reid family. Philly may have been rough on Coach Reid in the past (myself included), but I suspect he’ll see just the other side of it now as the city rallies around him in his time of need.

  • so ..what was the cause of death?

    Did he overdose?

    If this guy was a minority believe me that all the dirt would be out day one. Remember Dungy son’s suicide?

    We had all information first day.

    Where is the news on this tragedy?

    Did he overdose on crack?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    • songs, if he did die that way, who the f%#K cares, someone just lost a child, its about offering our sympathy right now, you either dont have kids or dont care about them, cause only either of those two would say that you peice of shit.

  • If you needed any more proof that songs is a fucking dick. Choke to death you mother fucking asshole

  • Songs ur a fucking idiot. Race has nothing to do with it jerkoff.

  • Songs ur also a total scumbag.

  • Sorry Mhenski…idiot, jerk off and scumbag arent strong enough…. That son of a bitch needs to hang by his tiny ball sack.
    I don’t always agree with AR but he has done a hell of a lot for philly football… And he’s done it with class and dignity. This is a personal tragedy… Keep it personal

  • Songs, YOU are the racist one. You’re the biggest pile of ass. I wish you were not an Eagles fan. The bad karma you’ve built is going to get you soon.

    Thoughts and prayers to Andy and his family.

  • awwwwwwwwwwwww

    • Songs, just when I thought you couldn’t be a bigger puddle of trash truck juice , you outdo yourself. Have you ever heard of an autopsy & coroners report? That doesn’t happen overnight! Especially the same day! But you can’t understand that, because you live in a world, where everything is a conspiracy & everyone, & everything is about race! Go find God, & also talk to a shrink, before that negative karma catches up with you. The big guy doesn’t like ugly, & you my man, is as ugly as they come!

  • A fucking amen!

  • Why dignify songs with a response? You’re just giving him what he wants. Take solace in the fact that you can guess the life he must lead from such schadenfreude…I feel sorry for you Songs… God bless Andy…RIP Garrett

  • Was shocked to read this today upon waking up. Thoughts and prayers out to the Reid family.

    As far as this article goes though, I do find the series of pictures to be encroaching on classless/tasteless.

  • When will the people pull together against the drug program establishment? Stop focusing on the corner hustler and set or sights on the organized government establishments who set up the cartels, ship the drugs to neighborhoods, then arrest the poor for illegal substance. This is a systematic planned destruction that have effected all parts of society.

    How many more people must die while the bankers and politicians get rich?

  • Sincere sympathy for the Reid family, especially Tammy and Andy.

  • @songs
    hey man I personally never had a problem with you (still don’t); but we can’t go there bruh. Not the time and place for that. respect and deference to the family of the victim in a time like this. The fact that you may feel that race would have been exploited if he were black, doesn’t change that Reid lost a son and that’s the bigger tragedy. Fall back bruh.

  • Let’s all rally around andy and get this Superbowl…..Dungy went through the same tragedy and aimed he had into winning for his son.

    Let’s win the Superbowl!!!!!

  • Charleton, loser. Going from site to site posting th same pile of garbage. You are a zero trying to be a one, and it isn’t happening for you, destined to be a zero forever. You brand of self-rightous scorn and subtle vaguely hidden accusation makes me want to puke. If you are not able to feel compassion for a father, mother, brother and sister who have just lost one of their own, it is a good time to get cancer, as you have outlived your usefulness on this planet.

  • Joe, although I agree with your compassion for the family, because that who really suffers here, mr1, made a few valid points. For you to wish him to get cancer & die, makes you worse than him. Don’t be a hypocrite. Although he was being a little self righteous, he was just giving his opinion. At least he wasn’t blaming it on the race card, like some other people on here do. I feel ZERO sympathy for Garrett, for he was a dealer & user, & did this to himself. Nobody forced him to stick that garbage into his body, he did. I lost my Father to a Heroine OD, so I have first hand knowledge how a Family suffers. I feel for the Family, not him. BTW, just in case anyone says it’s a disease, that is BS & an excuse. Diseases are Cancer, AIDS, heart disease, & things that are caught, or transmitted. Drug use is self inflicted, not a disease. Just saying, because I get sick & tired of hearing about drug & alcohol use, a disease, from all of the phonies giving the condolences. IMO, I think it’s BS. Sorry to be harsh. Stay strong Reid’s. My heart felt condolences. God Bless.
