Either it's on the football field or in the broadcasting studio, the American football broadcaster and former football player Louis Riddick has proved his prominence.
However, despite his popularity and constant media exposure, the broadcaster has surprisingly maintained a private lifestyle and has kept his personal details far from public reach.
But, some of the media outlets and his social media posts might reveal some facts about his not-so-known personal life.

Riddick has been married for over a decade now and is blessed with three kids, a son, and two daughters.
Although Riddick hasn't let their identity slip in the media through any source, he often fondly talks about his wife and kids on interviews and social handles.

Hinting at the fact that he sent off his child to college, he once wrote on his Twitter,
If moving your child into college doesn't cause you to tear up as a father, I don't know what to say to you. — Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) August 21, 2017
Several of his followers lined up in the comment section, sharing their share of the emotional experience as their children go off to college.
His Twitter posts clearly reflect how closely he is bonded with his family. In another one of his posts, replying to a Warren Sharp, he wrote,
Let me say this....Cherish it. For every reason you can think of. They grow up in the blink of an eye. It baffles me every day where the time has gone for me personally as it relates to my kids. — Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) April 6, 2019
However, given the fame he has acquired from his successful career in American football, it's understandable why he likes to keep his family details private.
Riddick's Career Shift
The former safety Riddick's journey to NFL began in 1991, after being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 9th round of the 1991 NFL Draft.
Having played for teams such as Sacramento Surge, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, and Orlando Rage for almost a decade, he later decided to halt his career as a player.

Besides tackling on the football field, Riddick found his place as a pro scout for several years. And later, he went on to become an analyst on ESPN.
