Holy cow.. Finally a long over due UFH nomination to a very well deserving person in FIRST.
I met Rich the first time this year at the NYC regional when I went there to hang out and inadvertently ended up volunteering.
Rich's sense of excitement when at NYC seemed to energize all those around him. He was there taking pics of all the cool moves on the field, and if nothing else, definitely helped fill the NYC Regional 2004 gallery here on CD.
Congratulations Rich, and I hope to see you again in 2005 at the NYC Regional, whether or not my team competes there.
edit: Whoa.. he mentored my team's millennium team (among many, many others)?? Cool!! Way to go Rich!
