Coach Corbin Quote: Riley is quietly one of the better all-around players in the league. He's as good of a second baseman as we have had in this program. He's consistent, sure-handed and a very accurate thrower. His making one error in 60 games stands alone in the country and is an unbelievable achievement, but believable because that's the way he performs everyday.
