Riley Aviles has a big game today.
Aviles is a wide receiver/safety on the Iona Prep football football team, which hosts Xavier at 1:30 p.m.
Aviles is also a standout in lacrosse. He was named first-team all-league and Attackman of the Year for the CHSAA Metro Division this past spring.
Lacrosse is also the sport he’ll be playing in college. He’ll be doing it at Franklin & Marshall. Aviles’ verbal to the Diplomats was first reported by Joe Lombardi earlier this week on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider expanded coverage section.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Aviles possesses quickness, good hands and field vision.
“My style of play can be characterized by forcing the issue, and creating plays,” he said.
Aviles suffered a broken wrist and was unable to attend the Brine National tournament as part of the Long Island South team this summer.

I am always striving to increase my lacrosse IQ.
I was introduced to lacrosse by friends around me who played lacrosse, and I also play football.
I played for Red Water and attended Jake Reid Nike Blue Chip, National Invitational 175 and numerous prospect camps.
I wanted to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to go to Iona Prep and pursue my aspirations to play in college. I also want to thank my high school coach Rick Trizano for developing my game and talking to college coaches on my behalf.
