Nice story, Rick. Wonderful job of adding context. I've known John and Rich longer than I prefer to remember, but never knew they were both at SDSU at the same time. Didn't SDSU win the national men's championship that year, or was it 1974? Maybe that helped the coaches to get involved in the sport. Both great people. Nice writing. You're doing the extra work, and it shows.
