Rich Hood has been the Burke Boys Swim coach since 1979. He has coached 3 State Championship teams, numerous state champions, and dozens of All-Americans. Rich not only pushed the swimmers in the pool, but also in the classroom. He emphasized representing Burke in a positive light, not only in the pool, but also in our community.
Coach Hood mentored hundreds of Burke swimmers to become good students, good fathers and valuable contributors to their community. The members of the OPS, Burke & Omaha swimming community wish to honor Rich’s 40-year career with a scholarship awarded in his name.
Funds will be used for a scholarship for graduating seniors who are members of the Burke Boys Swim Team and for special projects inside the Burke pool facility.
