Due to Richardson breaking his kneecap completely his sophomore and junior year he was not able to play last season and the season before. Richardson understands that this season is very important to him and other seniors who are apart of the NGU football team. Richardson also explains about how hard it was to deal with such an injury like this during his college career. He said that Mentally. Physically and Emotionally It was not something easy for him to overcome this hurtle in life but he did understand being a man, of Christ that everything the Lord does is for a reason and he would never leave you stranded. For the Lord always has a plan it's just up to us to trust his processes.
