Rick continued his journey as a high school football coach and a teacher for a good 18 years. During this period, his knowledge and experience allowed him the highest seat of serving as a High School Principal for six years. For Rick, it was the time to soar higher and he put it all in when he started the first Nationwide office in 1999 in El Paso. He started out as the Nationwide president and champion award office and this went on for another 12 years. Rick believes that growth knows no boundaries.
