He is a 2014 graduate of Liberty Christian Academy in Argyle, where he was a three-time TAPPS State Champion and Captain of the wrestling team.  Among his many accomplishments, he is the youngest person on record from his school to ever hold a State Wrestling Title.  He reported to Naval Basic Training on July 2.

During the eight-week program, Naval-recruit Reesor completed a variety of training exercises which included classroom study and practical instruction on US Naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, also shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.

It's distinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.
