Versatile athletes are hard to come by, but Tyson Riley can truly do it all. Riley primarily plays wide receiver, but he can line up backfield to catch passes or carry the ball. No matter how gets the ball, his excellent field vision helps him gain valuable yards. He also plays defense — he’ll do anything to help his team succeed. Riley makes one thing clear: football is his passion.
Riley is on the Osceola Kowboys and has been playing football since he was 4 years old. He maintains a strong work ethic, training in the sand, on hills, on the track and in the gym. Riley has built up his speed, which happens to be the best-known trait of his favorite player, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
Riley won MVP at a Tyreek Hill Family Foundation football camp, but that’s hardly his only accomplishment. At 5 years old, he won a flag football championship in the Tampa Bay Youth Football League. He’s also won a state championship with the Kowboys and a national tournament with the Pinellas Park Thunderbirds.
Riley has ambitious goals. He wants to play college football and make it to the NFL. His favorite college team is Miami, but he would love to play in Alabama and Georgia’s stadiums. His dream is to play at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With his skill set and determination, he may do it one day.
