“As a wrestler, Richie’s fantastically talented. He’s consistently getting better, and I don’t think we’ve seen him wrestle at his best yet, which is scary for a guy who’s been wrestling at the varsity level since the seventh grade. Richie’s also a good, fun-loving kid and has a great personality.”

— St. Joe’s coach Pete Kennedy
