Richard enjoyed an outstanding career on the diamond in North Adams. 

He was a team MVP while also collecting All MASCAC and All New England honors during his career.  After a slow start during his freshman season, Richard took over full time catching duties and became a force on offense and defense.  He batted .348 for his career and is in the top five all time in hits and runs batted in while at MCLA.

He was also on a pair of ECAC teams in 2001 and 2002.  Richard was a key contributor on the 2002 squad that set a school record for wins with 29. 

Richard also competed locally for the North Adams Steeplecats of the historic NECBL during the summer of 2002 and then won the gold medal as part of the American International Sports Tours in Holland in 2003.

Richard went on to graduate school at Springfield College before landing a job with the Miami Dolphins.  He would eventually work for the Jason Taylor Foundation before switching into higher education.  Richard became the Associate Director of Athletics for External Operations at Colgate University.  Currently, he is the Senior Associate Director of Athletics for Sport Administration at The Ohio State University.  At OSU, he oversees five athletic programs, the equipment room, the Ohio State Golf Club, and the largest Nike contract in the country.

While at OSU, Richard married his wife Molly in 2014 and has a two year old daughter Delaney.
