Senior Spotlight: RILEY S. EGER
Hometown: Grosse Pointe, Michigan
Major: Finance & Sustainability
Favorite RWU Sailing Memory: I would say my heavy crew/skipper Riley debut. At the Graham Hall Team Race at the Naval Academy, our A-skipper Tyler decided that he was going to break some team rules and perform a Dial Down on a opponent, Amanda did not like this and decided his heavy crew ( ME! ) was going to be the new A team skipper for a race to teach him how its done! It was scary but lots of fun.
Five Year plan: I'll be working in the family business come July, I plan to work side by side with my father and take the necessary steps to make our company the leading commercial door manufacturer in the country. After achieving this, I plan to return to the East Coast and pursue a job in consulting somewhere in Boston! And of course continue sailing throughout this time.
Coach Callahan impression: Riley did a great job this year not only as captain, but also as a pillar of fitness and team pump-up-speech-giver. (As 6'2" heavy air crew we didn't have enough hurricanes to get Riley on the water too often). Riley is incredibly adept at reading people and in social situations, and his teammates always looked to him for help and advice.
