Brady Riggs didn't play boys' soccer when he attended Burroughs High in the 1980s. He did, however, compete on the boys' golf team and had an outstanding career.
Riggs turned out to be perhaps the finest male golfer in school history, earning high school All-American honors. He also has since been inducted into the Burroughs High Athletic Hall of Fame.
Riggs has returned to his alma mater to coach — but not golf. Instead, he is the Indians' new girls' soccer coach.
"I have been coaching my eldest daughter in soccer since she was 5 and now she's a freshman at Burroughs," said Riggs about his daughter, Maddy. "One thing led to another, then all of a sudden I'm involved with the school again and now I'm the girls' soccer coach. It's just bizarre how the whole thing turned out.
"But I'm thrilled to be here. I just love the school. I went to Burroughs, my wife graduated from the school, both of my parents went to Burroughs and my uncle [Mickey McNamee] just got inducted into the Hall of Fame. So, it feels right to be here with daughter. I am also very passionate about soccer."
