Scott Riddle – Varsity Head Coach

Scott has been coaching with the Wolverine Baseball Program for over 14 years. The first three he served as an assistant to head coach Ed Bloom, working primarily with the outfielders. The 2017 season marks  his 13th year as Varsity Head Coach and he loves every minute, field raking, weed pulling and all.  Being a Jupiter High School and PBCC player and graduate, he has been around the high level of ball in the South Florida area for many years and understands that only the talented and dedicated players have the opportunity to excel here.  He feels that a player who can be successful in this county, can have many more years of competitive baseball to look forward to.

After graduating from Jupiter High School in 1982 Scott took a red shirt year then played baseball for Palm Beach Community College in the 1984 – 1985 seasons. The 1984 team won the school’s only state championship. He was selected as a Florida JUCO allstar during his sophomore season. After that season he spent the summer  playing baseball in the Shenendoah Valley League for the New Market Rebels. His next stop was at Columbus State University where he went to a class or two and played for the Cougars who made back to back appearances in the Division II College World Series in Mongomery AL. The Cougars lost in the championship game in the ’86 season to Troy State. After his junior year at Columbus, he played in the Cape Cod Leage for the Hyannis Mets.  Scott was named second team All American after the 1986 season and was selected as a first team All American after his senior season in 1987. After returning home from Columbus Scott enrolled at Florida Atlantic University where he earned his Bachelors degree in Marketing/Business Admin.  In the summer of 2007, he had the honor of being inducted into the Columbus State Athletic Hall of Fame.

Coaching is extremely important to Scott.  His goal for the Wolverine Program is to consistently produce highly competitive baseball teams with discipline and character, and teach players that dedication and hard work equals success.  When he is not on the WHS baseball field, he spends time with his wife Karen, son Bradley and twin girls Alana and Alee.
