While playing high school basketball in Cleveland, Ohio, Riley picked up the nickname "Downtown" for never missing a foul-shot. Once in the Army, he became skilled enough with firing mortars that he can judge range and trajectory just by eyesight. Downtown served with the G.I. Joe team on a number of missions before the team was shut down in 1994.
He was reinstated with the rest of the team, and was made a reserve member.
