    BACKGROUND:
    The Lou Ricchio Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Lou Ricchio. Lou lived for sports. He played a variety of sports his whole life. He also loved to read and write sports. In high school at Holy Cross and in college at Marquette University he was a sports writer. He graduated college with a degree in journalism. When you would have a conversation with Lou it always included stats and info regarding athletes and teams. He was an avid supporter of all the Chicago sports teams. His spare time was always scheduled with golf and friends. I know he would be proud that a scholarship for athletes would be in his name.
