Continuing the theme from the previous post of tight end numbers being given out to wide receivers, Logan Long’s (85) graduation frees up his number for the use of freshman Riley Petz.

Riley Petz (b. Feb. 16, 2002) is a walk-on wide receiver from Cheney High School who plans on majoring in agribusiness and is likely to redshirt in 2020 to gain more muscle mass.

Petz played under head coach Shelby Weharman at Cheney, where he earned first-team all-state honors as a senior from The Topeka Capital-Journal (on offense) and The Wichita Eagle (on defense) as he helped the Cardinals to advance to the state semifinals.

He was named 2019 Kansas Class 3A Co-Offensive Player of the Year by Sports in Kansas.

Petz had 39 catches for 989 yards and 15 touchdowns as a senior, to go with 99 carries for 943 yards and 13 scores, and also returned a kickoff return for a score and blocked a kick.
