Richard has coached numerous college teams such Vassar, Dartmouth and Hopkins for 15+ years winning numerous conference titles and advancing to the NCAA Tournament eight times (including a Final Four) before pursuing his dream to develop players. "My father trained me all the timeoutside of practice. Luckily he played at a very high level for Wormatia Worms. Additionally, I had the luxury of being trained 1 on1 by a former Italien Professional, who played in the Seria A for many years, for almost four years. I do believe those 1on1 sessions helped me to become of the best youth players in Germany and one of the best DI players in College!"
