No. 11 Elon’s Junior quarterback Scott Riddle of Ramseur, NC (hometown of T.A.H. Pop Culture Editor Young A.T.) grew up next door to T.A.H. loyalist and founding member John Allen (first cousin of T.A.H. Pop Culture Editor Young A.T.). Subsequently, we have been following his football career.

Riddle continues to be up to his old tricks – throwing 300 yard games with lots of touchdowns. He whizzed through his first two games against Davidson (56-0, 326 yards, 4 TDs) and Presbyterian (41-7, 346 yards, 4 TDs) setting even more Southern Conference records along the way.

Riddle hit a bump in the road when the D1AA Phoenix travelled up the road to Winston-Salem for a game against Wake Forest. Elon got throttled 35-7, but you can’t pin the poor showing on Riddle. While he didn’t light it up, he was a rock-solid 24 if 43 for 195 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Back in the SoCon for the next game, Riddle threw for 338 yards and a touchdown in a 28-14 win over Georgia Southern. In a come from behind victory over Furman (19-12), Riddle tossed the pigskin for 374 yards and a touchdown.

For the year, that’s a 4-1 record and 131 for 201 for 1,579 yards and 11 touchdowns against TWO interceptions. That’s an average of 315 yards a game.

Nice, Scott, NICE!
