Congrats go out to Resurrection Christian School boys basketball coach Bruce Dick for picking up win No. 500 in his career Tuesday night. It comes — as he puts it — in 30 and a half years of coaching, with a composite total of 500-182. Rez is his third stop, with Green Mountain and Rocky Mountain also on his resume.
Naturally, he talked of the kids on this year’s team, and how special a moment they made it, how blessed he was to have great players and assistant coaches to work with — and most importantly — his wife Terri.
“I have a great coach’s wife who has stood by me the whole way,” Dick said.
According to the Colorado High School Activities Association Web site records, Dick became the fifth boys basketball coach in state history to reach the milestone. And Friday night, he’ll start working on his next 500 wins, he joked, because he has no intention of giving up his craft any time soon.
“I love my job,” Dick said. “And I’ll tell you, practice is the best part of the day.”
