"I’m excited to be part of this opportunity for athletes of all skill levels to obtain year-round training on football fundamentals. I have seen firsthand what many striving football players lack as they progress to high school. Through Riggs Premier Football, athletes will receive general skill-level instruction on SAT’s (Stance, Alignment, Techniques), footwork, tackling fundamentals, and more advanced coaching on position reads and assignments, understanding schemes and the language football coaches use today."
