Inside the Herd: Riley Northway

Why did you choose Lipscomb?

I wanted to go to a school where I could grow spiritually, academically, and athletically. Lipscomb is the only school where I could see myself being challenged in all three of those areas. Also, I love the coaches and players and knew I could be around them all the time for the next four years and be happy!

What is your favorite thing about Nashville?

Definitely the food. There are so many good restaurants that you can only find in Nashville. I still haven't tried all the places recommended to me yet.

What do you want to do after college?

I'm studying computer engineering so I hope to graduate and possibly start working for a company in Nashville while getting my masters in engineering management.

Who do you look up to most and why?

It's a tie between my two grandfathers. One of them, Mel Northway, played basketball at the University of Minnesota and went on to play professional overseas. The other, AQ Oldacre, was a highly successful engineer and helped design the Patriot missile that protects Israel.

Favorite Bible verse

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" Jeremiah 29:11

If someone played you in a movie, who would it be?

Sandra Bullock (just because I love her)

What is something interesting about you that a lot of people probably do not know?

I love math! Yes, I'm a total weirdo but it's always been a passion of mine.

What do you like to do to get yourself prepared for a game?

Listen to some hype music and hang out with my teammates!

What is your favorite place to eat in Nashville?

Taco Mamacita
