B.J. Adigun teamed with quarterback Greg Ryan for three years on his way to becoming the most decorated wide receiver in East Tennessee State University football history.
For Adigun, it’s only fitting that he would be going into the ETSU Athletics Hall of Fame the same time as Ryan.
“When I first got the call that I was going in, I was very honored,” Adigun said. “Then to hear that Greg was also going in, it made it very, very special. As much time as I spent with him, for us to be going in together, that’s really special.”
It was another quarterback, Todd Wells, with whom Adigun would team for an unforgettable senior season in 1997.
