Name: Riley Burns
Height: 6′ 4″
A powerful and skilled lineman, Riley Burns is a strong team leader coming out of Milford High School (Milford, MA). Having participated in the New England Elite Football Clinic during the 2015 off season, and with plans to attend again in 2016, Burns takes both his football preparation and overall fitness seriously. Playing defense on the hockey team and competing in the throwing events on the track and field team, as well as participation in training at Athletic Based Training (Holliston, MA) has allowed him to hone his strength, power and athleticism, even in the off season. He has mastered speed and agility training, and has already begun instruction in the Olympic lifts. He has become proficient in the hang clean, translating to further power and blocking ability on the field.
With a 2.76 GPA and a score of 1400 on the SAT, Burns values his schooling. Having been in contact with the University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, and Villanova University, he states that he is looking to play hard while earning the best education he possibly can.
Riley Burns is the whole package. With a strong desire to earn an excellent education and become an athlete who leads by example, he brings with him a drive to better himself as an athlete, a student, and a team member. At 6’4” and 290 pounds, with a 5.30 40 yard dash time, Burns enjoys playing on the offensive line. However, he is equally talented on the defensive line, and is willing to move into the position in which he can best help the team succeed.
