LDS Coach Dies in Car-Pedestrian Accident

SPRINGVILLE, UTAH -- Coach Donald "Duke" Reid, who led Brighton High School to two state basketball championships and who was inducted into the Utah Coaches Hall of Fame in 1999 died Saturday, October 6th after being hit by a car while trying to cross Main Street in Springville, Utah on Friday. Reid was coach at four different high schools and also at Utah Valley State College, where he was also inducted into the school's hall of fame. He was 64.

Reid tried to cross Main Street at about 7:30 pm Friday against the light. In the dark, a motorist in a sport utility vehicle didn't see Reid until too late, and was unable to avoid hitting him. He was rushed to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, and died there six minutes after midnight.

Reid was one of Utah's most respected high school coaches, and was the brother of former BYU basketball coach Roger Reid. He was known for his modesty, as much as for his coaching, and, his brother says, "He was in [coaching] for the kids, not himself." He was often heard to say, "Coaches don't win games; kids win games."
