WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1989 THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR- MVP Riley makes things happen for bowl-bound BSU By MARK AMBROGI STAR STAFF WHITER Whenever David Riley's name pops up. Ball State football coach Paul Schudel always manages to find the same words. "He make things happen," the BSU boss said. The senior quarterback helped direct the 7-2-2 Cardinals to a Mid-American Conference title and an appearance in Saturday's California Raisin Bowl (3:30 p.m.. EST. WMCC-23) against Big West champion Fresno State (10-1) at Fresno. Calif. Named both the league's Offensive Player of the Year and MVP, Riley connected on 149 of 256 passes for 1 ,929 yards, including 13 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. His ability has definitely caught the eye of Fresno State coach Jim Sweeney. "He's a helluva player," Sweeney said. "He's a very smart player. He Just doesn't beat himself." But he does put the hurt on his opponents. Riley's record as a starting quarterback is 1 7-7-2 (.692). Throw out two losses In his two starts as a freshman and the record looks even more impressive. "David does a great job of making the correct reads on coverage." offensive ' coordinator Greg Meyer said. "And he has the athletic ability that he's able to execute and throw on target. "If the play we called is covered, David is able to move around and make things happen." Riley credits game experience for his field savvy. "I think the last couple years have helped me quite a bit," said Riley, a three-sport (basketball, football and baseball) standout at Valley View High School in Germantown, Ohio. In 1986. Riley played in nine games, completing 43 of 89 passes for 424 yards and was named the team's outstanding freshman. Riley was almost red-shirted the following season. "We knew David was a tremendous athlete," Meyer said. "But we had a good quarterback ' -in Wade Kosakowski. So we wanted to keep David back if he wasn't going to be a starter." But when Kosakowski went down with an injury In the fifth game of the season. Riley was pressed into action. Riley completed 38 of 62 passes for 491 yards in the final six games as the Cards went 4-2. In 1988.
