Emmanuel Reed transferred to UMaine from Buffalo this summer, and after the departure of Ramon Jefferson the Bears leading rusher in 2018 there is now a battle going on to see who will be the lead back in Orono.

Joe Fitzpatrick returns to UMaine, and he will be in the mix along with Reed and fellow transfer Jordan Rowell who came to the Bears from Northern Illinois.

Wayne Harvey caught up with Reed after practice Monday August 5th.
