A-Shon Riggins out for season

Recommended Posts


per thedailyhoosier.com


Not returning this year will be cornerback A-Shon Riggins.

The Ohio product had been dealing injuries this season, and Allen indicated that Riggins has decided to wrap-up his Hoosier career.

Riggins started five times in 2018 and finished tied for second on the team with three pass breakups.

His career got off to a promising start in 2016 when Riggins started eight times and was named as a honorable-mention on the BTN.com All-Freshman team.

Allen indicated that Riggins will remain with the team in a supporting role.

“Just had a lot of injuries that mounted for him,” Allen said.  “He’s an awesome young man.  He and I sat down and had a heart to heart about it and he’s going to continue to help the program and be with us but he won’t be playing.”

“He’ll graduate, and a guy that I really have a lot of respect for,” Allen said.

Riggins had been in the headlines in recent weeks as he became a father and attempted to balance football with his parental duties.

The news on Riggins’ departure comes on the heels of Allen’s Saturday announcement that defensive tackle Juan Harris is no longer with the program.
