After the scoreless tie with Georgia Tech, Ridley "was somewhat disgusted and declared that it was the worst game the Georgia team had ever played." Ridley was selected an All-Southern lineman along with teammates Harold Ketron and Sandy Beaver, achieving the honor in his first year at the position – moved to end from the backfield. One account of Ridley reads "Ridley's first year on the team he played this position so well that Coach Heisman named his as the All-Southern end. He is quick and active and never hesitates to tackle a man, seldom being blocked."
On June 6, 1906 Ridley married Sister Mabel Douglas Hood.
