This is a great moment for Heidelberg football and Brock Riggs, as well as the Tiffin community at-large.
Riggs is a Tiffin Columbian High School graduate and 5th-year student at The ‘Berg.
Watch Brock Riggs describe the play below:
“I was going for the dive, and then I got nervous, ’cause I thought it would look un-athletic. And I turned it into a front flip out of pure fear of looking un-athletic.”
