Re: Great story about hardwork and dedication

Thanks for sharing this story Chris. I hope this story serves as a form of inspiration to all students (and mentors) participating in FIRST. This is the form of dedication that makes us great.

Thanks for posting, Chris.

(Still waiting on the Hall of Fame vandalism picture. )
Ahh... yes for sure. I am almost never looking at a big enough picture.

Thank you!

Chris:

Fantastic story. Ricky - thanks for inspiring the rest of us!

If only it wasn't our alliance (364, 365, 1986) that was on the other side of the field for those first few matches!

Congratulations on your Curie Division win and for representing our division well on Einstein!

Part of what made this story so special is that Ricky is a senior and this was his last shot. It was nice for him that he got his chance, and even sweeter when it occurred in the last possible chance.

Daveonna is a senior, too. In fact, all of our drive team were seniors. Back to the drawing board for next year!

Awesome Job Ricky!!!
Congratulations on your big award at the championship. I always watch you guys closely, and I've been wanting to talk to someone on your team for a while. "Why?" you ask. Because my brother-in-law is on the Hopkins school board and his daughter will be starting high school next year. You guys should recruit her for the team next year - it's always good to have supporters on the school board with a personal stake in the team.

Re: Great story about hardwork and dedication

Another side note.......

Sunday Evening late before we left for St. Louis ( past 9:30 is late for me) Ricky called to say " I'm ready Martus, you can put me in". My response was that Daveonna run the arm all season she was the first choice.....

Did he know something?

Boy was I glad he was prepared! Thanks Ricky!

Re: Great story about hardwork and dedication

This story was passed on to my team as well. Outstanding!

This is one of those things that could be immortalized in song by some FIRST-related...band...or something.

"Hey Ricky, you're so fine...."

Re: Great story about hardwork and dedication

Dedication is dedication, no matter where Ricky put in his hours of practice.

Congratulations to Ricky for taking the initiative to do what was needed even though there was no sure reward.

This story makes me think of the movie "Rudy" with Sean Astin (before he became a hobbit).
