On Friday, that just may the therapeutic measure Riggleman needs. “We’re going to go out, get the tarps off, prep the field and try to stick to the schedule,” Riggleman said Thursday night about a 2 p.m. Friday doubleheader at home against Goshen College. “I don’t feel like anything magical is going on right now.” Maybe not magical, but certainly monumental.

So, the summer before my senior year, myself and four buddies loaded into my green Topaz and headed to Bowling Green State University for a couple days away from home, immersing ourselves under the eyes of dozens of college coaches from near and far. For me, nothing really came of that other than a few needed pointers in how to throw the football. For others, I’m certain doors were opened. I had mostly forgotten about that experience until last summer. On a muggy, rainy summer day, I headed to Macomb Dakota to cover the Sound Mind…
