He continued on as a student athlete at the NCAA Division One level, playing both football and lacrosse at the College of the Holy Cross. Following graduation, Rich founded the “Fat Rhinos” a post-colleague men’s club lacrosse team and was the President of the Northwestern University Men’s Club Lacrosse Team during his graduate studies. Rich coached elite level high school lacrosse players for seven years. Throughout those years, he had the pleasure of working with players (and their families) who were training to be: the best competitors at their position, all-stars in their leagues, integral assets to their college teams, and All-Americans. Some players became NCAA champions and represented Team USA, Team Sweden, and Team Bermuda in world games competition. Rich maintains an active lifestyle and has learned to cultivate mindfulness in exercise and sport.
