Nick Saban has said this season that Reichard has been one of the most productive players at their position in Alabama history. And it’s certain that Reichard has been a strong asset for the Tide across his 5-year career.
Reichard has hit 18 of his 21 field goal attempts this season, missing 3 from 40-49 yards. He has hit all 3 of his attempts from longer than 50 yards and across his career has missed just 3 kicks longer than 50 yards.
At the same time, Reichard has missed just 2 extra points across his career with 294 attempts. That’s pretty impressive.
Reichard is at 530 career points and counting.
