PECULIAR — When John Perry took over the Nixa football program in January, quarterback Reid Potts got to forming a relationship with the new head coach immediately.

Perry had a run-pass-option system that not many are capable of running at the high school level. Studying the offense was critical as the two hoped to turn the Eagles around.

But when Potts tore his ACL on July 29 — a month before the season was set to begin — the senior knew what he wanted to do.

“It was my senior year and Coach Perry meant a lot to me,” Potts said. “I didn’t want to miss out on my senior year. This was the best year of my life.”

Reid Potts, of Nixa, passes the ball during the Eagles Class 6 District 3 semifinal game against Lee's Summit West at Nixa High School on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.

Potts didn’t tell many, but Perry revealed after Nixa’s season-ending 18-15 loss to Raymore-Peculiar in the Class 6, District 3 championship on Friday night that Potts played the entire season on a torn ACL. 

Potts also thinks he may have torn his meniscus when his knee blew out on him when attempting to run in the Eagles’ Sept. 4 win over Joplin.
