Rich is the owner of Gooser Sports in Davie, Florida. Gooser Sports is a leader in providing Team Apparel and Equipment in South Florida. After growing up in South Florida and graduation from Cooper City High School, Rich attended the University of Florida where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing in 1992.
Rich was hired directly out of college by Wallace (now RR Donnelley) as a Sales Rep in the print industry. After 12 successful years at RR Donnelley where Rich was an outstanding performer in his field, Rich decided to join the private sector.
After a few years in the private sector, in April of 2007 Rich knew he wanted to work in an industry where he felt he could make a positive impact in his community, so he started Gooser Sports. Initially run out of his home, so he could work while still raising his two small children, Gooser Sports has grown to be a well-known and respected leader in team sports in South Florida over the last 10 years. Rich’s love for football started early where he began playing at the age of 5, refereeing at the age of 15, and coaching at the age of 19 while on breaks from college. He continues to coach today where he has helped build the Cooper City High School girls flag football program into a state contender. Rich continued to play football competitively after college and was inducted into the Florida Flag Football Hall of Fame in June of 2017. He is also on the Football Boards for Cooper City Optimist, and Future Stars Game Florida. Rich is an advocate for the advancement, expansion, and safety of the game of football so it can continue to provide the valuable life lessons to today’s youth, he is so grateful it has provided to him.
