The Texas native received the 2020 GayVN Award for Best Newcomer (in a tie with Nic Sahara). In an interview with AVN prior to winning, Riley said, “I just want to be the best model that I can…. Professionally, being nominated for best newcomer at these award shows is so cool to me. I don’t expect to win anything, but I just wanna continue to get nominated, and it just shows me that I’m doing decent at my job, so my goal is just to continue to receive that recognition.”
