Rick's passion is working to get all oars rowing in the same direction through meaningful collaboration, largely in the youth sports, physical education, and physical activity domain. He most enjoy positively influencing students, athletes, and personal training clients to be the best version of themselves.
One of Rick's favorite quotes is, "Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." This quote applies to his personal philosophy that he must always continue to learn and grow physically, mentally, and socially. It also applies to his academic philosophy that we must meet students where they are to provide the best chance for success. It applies to his primary/research interest in providing a cradle-to-grave approach to adopt a physically literate culture.
