Athlete of the Week: P.D Riddle

PALISADE, Colo. (KKCO) Palisade football's starting quarterback, P.D. Riddle, continues to raise the bar in 2016, fine-tuning his abilities as a signal caller..

"This year I’ve been able to create a better bond with the guys.” says Riddle. In his second year under center for the bulldogs, he's led them to their current 5-1 record. Coming in as the second leading rusher on the team and racking up 8 touchdowns in the first six weeks of play. But there's more to him that his stats.

Coach Joe Ramunno says he’s trusted by his teammates, "He's a great leader our guys really respond to him. he puts himself and our team in a good position so you know that I can trust him out there.”

One the strongest bonds he's got on the team is the one with his little brother Christian, who just so happens to play quarterback on the team. "I think a lot of people look up to him the same way that I do just because he's my brother and we're close and stuff, we've just always been around each other,” his brother, Christian, told us.
