Reginald DeVincey Wayne (born November 17, 1978 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American football wide receiver who currently plays for the NFL's Indianapolis Colts.

High School Career

Wayne attended John Ehret High School in Marrero, Louisiana, where he was a two-sport standout in both football and track. In football, he was a two-time All-State honoree, and as a senior, caught 50 passes for 930 yards (18.6 yards per reception average) and 10 touchdowns. In track, he ran the 200-meter dash and various relays.

College Career

As a 4-year starter at the University Of Miami playing with Santana Moss and Andre Johnson, Wayne set a school record 173 career catches (including 36 consecutive games with a reception) and is only one of three wide receivers in school history to post 20+ touchdowns in his career joining Michael Irvin and Lamar Thomas. His 48 receptions as a freshman were a school record. Wayne graduated with a degree in liberal arts. [cite news||url=|title=Reggie Wayne: The Official Website of the Indianapolis Colts]

Professional Career

Reggie Wayne was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 30th selection in the 2001 NFL Draft, and was taken to eventually compliment the Colts other star receiver, Marvin Harrison.

In Wayne's first year, he caught only 27 passes for 345 yards with no touchdowns. His yards doubled the next year as he caught 49 passes for 716 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Wayne became the full time starter for the Colts during the 2003 season, and he caught 68 balls for 838 yards and 7 touchdowns. The next season, Wayne caught 77 passes for 1,210 yards and 12 touchdowns during a season in which Colts quarterback Peyton Manning set a then-record by throwing for 49 touchdowns. During the playoffs, Wayne was named the "Wild Card Weekend Offensive Player of the Week" after the Colts beat the Broncos. In 2005 Wayne continued to increase his yearly reception total with 83.

In 2006, Wayne signed a 6-year, $39.5 million contract, and went on to catch 86 balls for a career high 1,310 yards and 9 touchdowns. As a result, Wayne was selected to his first Pro Bowl. Wayne helped the Colts defeat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI with a 53-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

In 2007, Wayne responded to a rash of injuries on the team, including Harrison and tight end Dallas Clark, and set career highs in receptions (104), and yards (1510). He led the league in receiving yards and was selected to go to the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive year.

Reggie Wayne has stated that it is his goal to increase his receptions total each year, which he has accomplished for the first seven years of his career.

Probably one of his most important catches was a one handed catch over a texans defender to hand them the lead and the win to avoid 1-3 start.
