Kevin Richardson, Sophomore, Golf
Head Coach Jamie Smyth '92:
“Kevin has made a huge impact on our golf program with only one year under his belt. He has the ability to be one of the best golfers that I have coached in my eight at Saint Joseph's. I feel Kevin’s best golf is still in front of him and really look forward to seeing him develop as both a golfer and a young man. Not only does he excel on the course but is an excellent student and a great leader by example for our team”
