Being a Northern NJ native, Richard has been a fan of the Jets since elementary school. Still Residing in Northern NJ, Richard has enjoyed his second year as a Jets season ticket holder, and on Sundays, during the regular season, he either finds himself glued to the T.V. screen, or sitting in section 340 at MetLife Stadium. Richard has been interested in sports journalism for a number of years and he is thrilled to have the opportunity to be writing for TheJetPress.com
