Riley Bullough carries on family tradition at Michigan State

At the top of the scouting report for Riley Bullough is probably a blurb about his “football pedigree.”

In today’s Michigan State-Ohio State meeting, Bullough became the fourth member of his family to record at least 200 tackles as a member of the Spartans.

Between the years 1988-1991, Riley’s father Shane and his uncle each reached the milestone while playing linebacker. Then, during the 2010-2013 seasons, his brother Max joined the club while putting together a career as a three-year starter.

The youngest brother, Byron, is also a member of the Spartan’s squad and is currently competing for playing time in his third year with the team.

Adding to the Bullough-Michigan State lore, Riley’s grandfather, Henry and his other uncle, Bobby, also played for the Spartans.

Bullough is celebrating Senior day in East Lansing today, something that has become a family tradition with how often it happens. Unfortunately, the Spartans have not had as strong a season as they hoped they would.

They currently sit at 3-8 after a heartbreaking one-point loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes earlier today.
