Great little side story about Riley Reiff and his grandfather Lloyd Reiff from last night.
Lloyd is 92 years old and is suffering from cancer. He’s in a wheelchair, is on oxygen and doesn’t have long to live, according to Tom Reiff, Riley’s father.
“His goal was just to make it (to see the draft) because he’s kind of day-by-day,” Tom Reiff said.
Lloyd was able to see Riley drafted last night and that’s part of the reason Riley wanted to stay behind in South Dakota instead of joining other draft prospects in New York.
When Riley’s name was announced, he and Lloyd were able to share a very special handshake that Riley says he’ll remember for the rest of his life.
