A Major Move: Despite wait, Ricke heading off to Naval Academy



“I loved South Carolina. It was a great experience,” he said. “I know what college is like. I know how to study. I think that experience puts me a little ahead of the others coming in.”

He said he has received tremendous support from his family. He said the entire family will take one more vacation together this month before he leaves for Annapolis. He said his first time off will be at Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks.

“I am just trying to live a normal life for the next few weeks,” he said.
