Ritcherson began by discussing his youth in Waco, Texas; his college experiences as a student-athlete at Wiley College; and his coaching and teaching career at Midland High School and then at Waco’s A.J. Moore High School, where he won several state championships. He explained how he came to Wisconsin and discussed his coaching career in Madison.
