Boys Athlete of the Week: Donovan Riley, Poly, football

Riley's play on both sides of the ball led the No. 8 Engineers to a 12-0 victory over Edmondson Saturday, preserving Poly's unbeaten record. The senior, headed for Virginia Tech, had three interceptions and four tackles and scored both touchdowns — all in the second half. A 6-foot, 192-pound All-Metro second-team cornerback who doubles as a wide receiver, Riley had his first interception early in the half, setting up his 29-yard touchdown reception. He ran his third interception back 13 yards for a touchdown, the first time he had ever returned one for a score. Riley, who has a 3.4 GPA, finished with 83 all-purpose yards, including 65 on four receptions.
