Professional Basketball Player, CAB Madeira
“I think DRIVE can be an exceptional tool for helping inner-city youth reach their sports potential and at the same time develop a great work ethic they can apply in the classroom and in everyday living. This is the type of organization that’s been missing in Milwaukee.”
Ricky grew up playing basketball on Milwaukee’s competitive courts, was an All-State performer at Milwaukee Riverside University High School, and earned an NCAA DI scholarship at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
During college, Ricky was a 4-year starter for Coach Rob Jeter and earned All-Horizon League honors as a senior. He also spent time as a gym coordinator for the Milwaukee Hillside Boys and Girls Club and volunteered his time to coach 8th-grade basketball for Saint Marcus.
