Coach quote on Performance:

“Riley is putting together an excellent first season of senior football. Using his height and athleticism to great effect. He reads the ball well and is very good by foot. Great for Growthbuilt SUANFC to have another former Colt graduate to senior football in 2018” – Tony Overall.
