The 2019 Boise State football team is no joke, but it does have a couple Riddles. (ba dum tishhhhh)
#89, Connor Riddle, Redshirt Freshman, WR
High School: Timberline High School (Boise, ID)
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Connor walked for his graduation in 2018 at Timberline, and then walked-on at Boise State. Some might insinuate he had some inside connections being related to a coach, but anybody who’s ever played for their dad knows you gotta earn it twice as hard.
In high school, Connor actually played both ways, even being honored as 1st Team All-SIC Defensive Back and 2nd Team All-SIC Wide Receiver. In college he opted for the offensive side of the ball.
If you squint a bit, he’s not far off from Christoph Kramer, a football midfielder for the German national team.
Connor accumulated no stats in 2018, but has a pretty legit highlight reel from high school.
As mentioned many times before, BSU’s wide receiver depth is just nutty. However, an interesting twist is that Connor returned a lot of kicks in high school. There’s some potential that he might get slotted into special teams should the need arise, but we’d anticipate more of that kind of action once he’s a super-sophomore. Just when (and if) son-of-Kent plays will be the answer to at least one Riddle (second ba-dum-tsssh).
Is he on Twitter?
Yes he is! He averages about 1.5 tweets per month, but they’re usually pretty good.
Completely made up fact
Connor has been banned from all Boise-area Red Robin restaurants. The details are muddy, but he reportedly attempted to pull the open-to-close run of “bottomless” fries and root beer floats, and got booted sometime during dinner rush.
