Vinnie Rizzo is in his fourth season as the Offensive Line Coach at ASA College.

2018's offensive line was consistently regarded as one of the top units in the country and factored heavily in the Avengers setting single-season school records in total offense (470.8 ypg; 3rd in NJCAA) and rushing yards per contest (255.3 ypg, 4th in NJCAA).

In 2017, Rizzo coached an offensive line unit that featured the #1 rated 247Sports Offensive Tackle, Badara Traore (LSU) and #1 rated Offensive Guard Johncarlo Valentin (Baylor). The line led the way for an offense that ranked 6th in points per game (41.9) and 7th in total offense (4,661). The offensive line only allowed 16 sacks on 289 passing attempts during the season.

Rizzo spent two seasons at Nassau Community College, helping the Lions to an undefeated season and Valley of the Sun Bowl Champions. During the 2015 season, the Lions ranked among the nation's top 20 teams in total offense, passing offense, and scoring offense.

Rizzo is a 2013 graduate of the University of Akron earning a degree in Business Administration. He was a two-year letterman for the Zips Football team, appearing in 20 games. Prior to Akron, Coach Rizzo was a two-year starter on the offensive line at Nassau Community College, where he served as a team captain and earned All-Conference honors.

Rizzo currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.
