His dad, Jimmy, was a Little All-American at Elon, so that made the decision easy. In his first collegiate start for Elon as a true freshman, young Mr. Riddle connected on 33 of his 54 passing attempts for 210 yards with one touchdown and one interception. His 33 completions set a new Elon record, eclipsing Wes Pope’s 30 completions against Wofford last season. Riddle’s 54 pass attempts fell one short of the program-record 55 by Heath Hewett against Catawba in 1990 while Hudgins’ career-high 14 receptions fell one shy of Richard McGeorge’s Elon-best 15 against Western Carolina in 1968.
All this while losing to the Big East's South Florida Bulls who tried to remove his head on the play in the photo.
