Hall of Fame – 2002
Rich , now retired, has been an official 27 years. In the words of Dan Brost, Mullen (Hall’94) “he has worked all the major tournament in this area and the State Meet several times. Good guy, good official, and he really cares about the competitors.” Rich attended Chadron State College from 1975-1974 where he took on the job of assistant wrestling coach. He was selected to work the Nebraska State High School Wrestling Finals 7x. These were all very special, according to Rich. He remembers his biggest thrill coming when he got a call on Monday afternoon to be in Lincoln on Wednesday night to work the 2000 State Finals. Rich is being introduced by Coach Dan Brost, (Hall ’94).
