Parkston Native Reiff Becoming Top NFL Prospect

November 29, 2011, 11:00 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Parkston Native Reiff Becoming Top NFL Prospect
IOWA CITY, IA - Since redshirting his freshmen season Parkston native Riley Reiff has started 36 out of 38 games for the Hawkeyes. The 6'6" 300 pound junior has been the starting left tackle the last two seasons and the experience has been even better than he imagined.

"Playing in the Big Ten was a dream of mine growing up and being actually able to play is an honor. It's a great time," Iowa Junior OT Riley Reiff said.

Reiff was the Gatorade South Dakota player of the year as a senior in high school dominating both sides of the ball for Parkston and even after three solid seasons at Iowa the Trojan alum hasn't forgotten where he came from.

"I always look back and think about South Dakota and think about how much pride I have in that state. It's a great place to grow up," Reiff said.

And after spending a few years in Iowa City, Reiff doesn't mind his 2nd home much either.

"Iowa they have great fans all over the nation. My parents make it to every game. It's just great being close to home," Reiff said.

Reiff will have a big decision to make after the Hawkeyes bowl game. The junior has been projected by many scouting services as a potential first round pick in next years NFL draft if he decides to forgo his senior season, but Reiff isn't ready to make that decision just yet.

"That'll sort itself out with time. Right now I'm just worried about bowl prep and our bowl game. I really don't worry about that right now," Reiff said.
