Rick loved coaching basketball. He started coaching right after high school and did it until his last day. He loved playing basketball as well. As soon as he finished playing, he went right into coaching. He coached at the Orange County Rec Dept. He was passionate about mentoring his players and helping them in any way he could. He was more than just a coach to his players, he was someone they could always depend on and look up too. He was always his happiest when he was spending time with his family.
