“Coach Rice has been extremely influential in my growth and development as a man. As my coach and 7th grade Science teacher, he always gave and received the highest level of respect while giving off the vibe as a friend and mentor. On the court and in the classroom he realized my potential, believed in me and pushed me to be the best that I could be. His advice and support over the years has already allowed me to accomplish things I never imagined. There are only a few males that I can call great friends as well as great role models and Coach Rice sits at the top of the list.”
