Rich Risemas

Category:  Coach
Year Inducted:  2016

Coach Risemas spent over 25 years coaching in the Memorial System building a grade school powerhouse at St. Bends for the first 16 years. Then once he arrived at Memorial High School he continued to build Championship Clubs winning Back-to-Back Regionals in 1986 and 1987.  If not for Damon Bailey, the Blue and White Tigers might have hung up back-to-back State Titles.  Coach Risemas is still teaching the game today working camps in the summer at Notre Dame and has spent many summers as an Instructor at Bob Knights famous IU Camps.
