Becomes the Latest Aquinas Raider to Commit to a Division I School
In back to back nights, St. Thomas Aquinas has had a pair of Top 100 rated recruits make their commitments. Thursday Night it was Cody Riggs turn. The Gridironstuds.com member pledged his services to the defending champion Florida Gators.
Riggs burst onto the scene in 2008 when he nabbed eight interceptions and locked down receiver after receiver. This year the interception numbers are not as high as teams have wisely chosen to throw less against Aquinas’ All Star defensive backfield. Nevertheless Riggs has handled his business and has played a strong part on a defense that has only allowed 7.5 points per game. Riggs is leading the team with four interceptions and 10 passes defensed this season. He has 12 career thefts for the Raiders. Aquinas takes on Bradenton Manatee in the semi-final round of Florida 5-A Playoffs on Friday.
