He started playing lacrosse in sixth grade. In a 2016 interview with Penn Athletics, Reich spoke about the leadership skills his lacrosse years taught him.

"I've learned how to lead by example. Actions speak louder than words, so they look to what I bring to the field and how I handle other situations. But other people do that for me, too. We have all learned how to pick each other up and keep going, how to give that boost we need. We rely on each other."

Reich designed Lea's four carat radiant cut ring with jeweler Leor Yerushalmi and the jewelry store The Jewelers of Las Vegas. He may be in business development and strategy in the apparel industry now but if that ever fails, he can always start a jewelry line.

"...I’m very happy and I think that you can tell. I don’t really talk a lot about my personal life but I’m also the kind of person where I always say, ‘You will see how happy I am just by looking at my face.’ I can’t hide it.”
