Some people have football in their blood from birth.
Ridge Point's John Paul Richardson is one of those people.
His father, Bucky, was a folk-hero as the QB of Texas A&M back in the early 1990s. He bounced around the NFL for a few years, but his legacy was laid in Aggieland as a rough-and-tumble, signal-caller who made big plays and won ball games.
JP Richardson is a chip off the old block.
"I catch him watching his old highlights on Youtube sometimes," JP laughed. "I don't look at it as trying to live up to what my dad did. I think of it as an advantage. He coached me in Little League and that's where I really developed the love of the game. I matured quickly and understood the game really early. I take the advice he gives me to heart. He's been there-done that. I'm all ears when he talks."
