There’s only 86 days until Texas Tech football! Our number 86 is Dalton Rigdon, a freshman that was redshirted last year and will be looking to make an impact with his speed. He appeared in one game last year against Eastern Washington.

Here on a track scholarship, Rigdon is really talented athlete, boasting accolades from two different sports as he is a long jumper for the Red Raiders’ track and field team as well as a wide receiver for Kliff Kingsbury and company. He will be looking to make an impact this year on special teams mainly as he might get some snaps here and there on offense.

His speed is something everyone boasts about, at 5’11 and 170 lbs, he will be working on coming out of the slot as he did at Perryton High School. He also has kick and punt return abilities that Coach Kingsbury might want to use in later seasons. Rigdon also playing running back at times for the Perryton, coming out of the backfield to catch passes.
