My name is Matt Riggins. I was born and raised in Monroe, NC and graduated from Parkwood High School in 2003. I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on a Teaching Fellows Scholarship and graduated in 2007 with honors with a BA in History with a concentration in Comprehensive Social Studies and Secondary Education after completing my student teaching here at Central Cabarrus. My first 11 years in the classroom were spent back at Parkwood and this is my first year at Central. I've been coaching football for 12 years now and track and field for 8. I was previously the Rocky River Conference Coach of the Year in 2017 when both our Men's and Women's track teams won Conference and Regional Championships. In my spare time I enjoy working out, watching sports, Netflix binges, and hanging out with my dog, Xero.
