“Riley will be a very valuable addition to our staff,” Ferguson said. “He brings a wealth of experience in many sports, and we are excited to have him work with the student-athletes here at Michigan Tech.”

“I love it here in Houghton,” Schreck said. “Hiding in the trees feels like home. I am excited to continue the strong traditions at MTU and build the strength and conditioning department.

He then attended Eastern Washington University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. Schreck went on to earn a Master of Science in Kinesiology from Western Illinois University.

He completed two strength and conditioning internships and was the graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at Western Illinois for volleyball, track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s tennis, cross country and softball.
