A New ‘Dream Team’?

July 27, 2023
• Richkaard Verrier shares his thoughts on starting at Needham High School and the athletic director Ryan Madden explains their prior connection before they came to Needham.

The Rockets are no strangers to excelling through teamwork. They have had many championship runs in recent years and expectations are always high when they take to the courts and fields. However, this year, the most highly anticipated team of the fall may not be the ones on the gridiron or the soccer pitch–it is the one in the front office of the athletic department. A new team is taking shape there, but one with a lot of history behind it. Sports Producer Kristen Connors gets the jump on the season, and shares their story.


You can find out more about Needham’s New Athletic Director in Part 1 of Kristen’s interview, which aired last week on the Needham Channel News.
