Blankenship Player Comments
"Riederer is a very athletic, small linebacker that may move back to a safety spot for us. He's very intelligent. High test score, high academic kid that just plays fast and smart. He's incredibly well-trained athletically. His dad was a strength coach in college and in the NFL, and he's just a tremendous athlete."
