THE RIDDLE WATCH

(For those of you new to TAH, Scott Riddle is the neighbor of a TAH cousin down in Ramseur, NC. The TAH editor played some hoop with him as a kid, and Mrs. TAH (Young A.T.) knows the family well. It wasn’t unusual to drive by the Riddle’s house and hear a baseball bat crack or a ball bouncing at any hour of the day or night. TAH has been covering Riddle’s collegiate career since his freshman debut vs. USF on national TV.)

Scott Riddle connected on 13 of his 20 passes with an interception for 162 yards and three touchdowns in #3 Elon’s 42-7 win over Chattanooga last Saturday (Oct 18).

Riddle is the all-time Elon and SoCon leader in passes attempted in a season (508 last year), passes completed in a game (41 at Wofford last year), passes completed in a season (346 last year), passing yards in a game (534 at Furman last year), passing yards in a season (3,817 total and 347.0 per game last year – also NCAA freshman records), touchdown passes in a season (31 last year – also an NCAA freshman record), touchdowns responsible for in a season (40 last year) and total offensive plays in a season (622 last year).

Riddle is the all-time Elon leader in passes completed in a career (515), passing yards in a career (5,815), touchdown passes in a career (49), total offense in a game (516 at Furman last year), total offense in a season (3,738 net yards and 339.8 per game last year – also NCAA freshman records) and total offensive plays in a game (67 versus Georgia Southern last year).

Riddle is also the all-time SoCon leader in pass completion percentage in a season (68.1 last year), overall games and consecutive games passing for at least 200 yards in a season (11 last year), overall games and consecutive games passing for at least 300 yards in a season (nine last year), touchdown passes in a quarter (three versus Chattanooga last year), consecutive games throwing a touchdown pass in a season (11 last year) and consecutive games throwing a touchdown pass in a career (19).

Other than that, he’s not all that good...
