Head Coach - Jenks High School
Riggs succeeded Allan Trimble as head coach in 2018. Trimble won a state-record 13 state titles in 22 years from 1996-2017. Riggs was Trimble’s DC for seven of those state championships. Riggs has been the Trojans’ assistant head coach and defensive coordinator since 2010.
Riggs, 52, was a 1983 All-State defensive end and halfback at Owasso, where he gained 2,400 yards in his last two seasons. He was the Metro Lakes Conference’s 1983 co-player of the year. In a 1982 game, he rushed for a then-Owasso record 245 yards in a 28-21 win over Bixby.
Riggs passed up an academic scholarship from Princeton to continue his football career at Northeastern A&M, where he was a starting linebacker at NEO in 1984 and ’85.
League Rival Broken Arrow had this to say about Riggs: “He really knows how to dissect an offense and put a great game plan together. I was around him for 6-7 years and saw his great attention to detail and great work ethic seven days a week.”
