Richardson will begin his third season with the Bluejays in 2014-15.
A Washington Metro Area native, Richardson began his rowing career in the fall of 2005 at Gonzaga College High School. Almost immediately pegged as a coxswain, he competed across much of the Northeast during his interscholastic rowing career.
Richardson rowed all four years at Marquette University, during which served as coxswain for both the varsity women and men respectively. During his collegiate career he would find success, medaling several times. His two proudest moments were being the coxswain to the boats that won gold at the final Indianapolis Collegiate Invite, and a 4th place finish at the 2009 Head of the Charles, the world’s largest two day regatta.
Richardson graduated Marquette in May of 2012 with a BA in International Affairs. While in college he served as co-President of the Executive board for Marquette’s club Rowing team in the 2010-2011 academic year. He also served as the Volunteer Assistant Coxswains Coach for the Milwaukee School of Engineering during the 2011-2012 Academic year.
Currently Richardson is working on his Juris Doctorate from Creighton’s School of Law, with hopes of achieving a certificate in International Law as well.
