The transition phase for Reade finally came to a close in 2009: He is now the multifaceted offensive threat that he and everyone around him knew he could be. After two years spent away from the lacrosse field, and then a return to the field in 2008 that was unfulfilling, Reade evaluated himself and his goals. What did he want? The man answered this question with actions, not just words. In 2009, he "streamlined" himself, shedding 25 pounds, and he changed himself from simply a power dodger into one of the best feeding midfielders in the country who still could run through his defender.
