Meet the Inductees
A graduate of the Riordan Class of 1976, Michael Brown was a three-year varsity starter on the football team.
During his junior and senior seasons as a Crusader, Brown eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing in each campaign, rushing for 2,589 yards during his career – third all-time in program history. Brown was the first player to rush for consecutive 1,000 yard seasons and one of two players in Riordan history to reach this accomplishment. He was also named to the All-WCAL Team his senior season.
Playing in the run-based, veer offense, Brown literally and figuratively carried the bulk of the work load for the Crusaders during his time at Riordan. His 516 career rushing attempts are the most all-time by a Riordan football player.
After Riordan, Brown went on to play football at San Francisco State University.
A graduate of Riordan Class of 1991, Rodney Glover was an All-WCAL First Team quarterback and WCAL Quarterback of Year his senior season and Second Team All-WCAL as a junior.
In two seasons as the Riordan starting varsity quarterback, Glover played in 20 games, passing for over 2,500 yards and 23 touchdowns. During his senior season in the Fall of 1990, Glover’s 18 touchdown passes set a then single-season school record and remains the second most touchdown passes by a Crusader in a season to-date.
He was First Team All-Bay Area in Football at Riordan and finished his high school career ranked as one of the top 15 quarterbacks in the country.
Glover was also a member of the 1989-1990 Riordan varsity basketball team that reached the state finals.
He received a football scholarship and attended the University of Hawaii, where he played four seasons and was a member of the 1992 Western Athletic Conference championship team.
Terrance Wood was a two-time All-WCAL First Team defensive back and a graduate of Riordan Class of 1997.
He was named First Team All-Bay Area and honorable mention All-State in Football in 1997, while also starring on the Riordan Track & Field team – winning the WCAL 400-meter title in the spring of his senior year.
Wood received a football scholarship and attended the University of Colorado, where he was part of the Buffalos team that won the 2001 Big XII championship. He played four years of professional football between the Arena Football League and Canadian Football League.
He returned to Riordan as an assistant football coach in the mid-2000s and was a member of the 2006 CCS championship-winning coaching staff.
One of the most inspirational and impactful figures in Riordan’s history, Tyrone McGraw was a star in both Football and Track & Field while wearing the purple and gold as a member of the Class of 2006.
He was named All-WCAL First Team and the league’s Running Back of the Year as a senior and was selected Second Team All-WCAL as a junior. McGraw is the Riordan single-season rushing record holder, amassing 1,519 yards in just 10 games during his senior season in 2005.
For his career, McGraw rushed for 2,344 yards, good for fourth all-time in program history, in just 19 total games. His 21 career rushing touchdowns rank fifth in Riordan history and his 123 rushing yards per game is second best among all Crusaders for a career.
In Track & Field as a Crusader, McGraw was the CCS 200-meter champion as a senior and was a member of the 2005 CCS championship track & field team. He was named Scholar-Athlete of the Bay Area by the San Francisco Olympic Club following his senior year.
McGraw went on to attend and graduate from Stanford University, where he played Football and competed in Track & Field.
McGraw passed away in 2017 after a three-year battle with cancer, but his impact and legacy will continue to live on at Riordan for generations to come. Learn more about the Tyrone McGraw Scholarship.
