HSFB: Riders Relying On Christion To Lead Them

HSFB: Riders Relying On Christion To Lead Them
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After racking up monster numbers as a junior, Roosevelt Senior Quarterback Taryn Christion had offers from Eastern Michigan, North Dakota St., and several others. However the state's top prospect wanted to keep his talents close to home.

Taryn Christion enters his much anticipated senior season at Roosevelt looking to claim an 11AAA title that the Riders thought was theirs, until Lincoln took it from them. Now the Rushmore State's hottest team has more fuel for their fire.

"I'm feeling confident and excited. We had a good year last year, but didn't quite finish how we wanted to. We've all got a fire under our butts and have been working hard in the off-season. We're all looking forward to this season," Christion said.

Christion had a very successful junior season throwing for more than 2,500 yards and combining for 42 total touchdowns. After football he helped the Riders win a state title on the hardwood before winning the long jump at the state track meet.

"The guys is a workaholic and on top of that he is a 3.7 student. He knows what it takes to be successful and he continues to do it. I know at South Dakota St. he is going to have a great career and I can't wait to watch him play," Roosevelt Head Coach Kim Nelson said.

The 6'2" QB recently passed up Eastern Michigan, North Dakota St., and many others to play football at SDSU. He signed early for one reason.

"I wanted to get it off my shoulders before the season started, so I could focus on my senior season. I chose SDSU because I felt at home there. They have a genuine coaching staff and they seemed the most passionate about me as a person and a football player," Christion said.

Christion and his Riders will have to go through the gauntlet early on, facing Brandon Valley, Washington, and Lincoln the first three weeks.
