                               Mr. Pat Richter -
    "I recall playing just about every sport you can think of as a youngster yet
     being part of a Cub Scout pack provided a regular get together for us to
  learn some basic and important life values and created an environment and
     camaraderie that still endures to this day with those childhood friends.
      Although I did not pursue Scouting beyond the Cub Scout level I am
 very proud of the fact that Tim, one of our sons, is an Eagle Scout. Having the
       opportunity to work together with him on his Eagle project was an
      unforgettable experience made possible only through the unlimited
                      opportunities provided by Scouting."

Pat Richter completed his 15th and final year leading the athletic department at his alma
mater on April 1, 2004. The former all-star student-athlete at Wisconsin rescued the
athletic department in the early 1990’s and created a plan for a prosperous future in the
new millennium.
Richter accepted the position in 1989 and inherited a $2.1 million debt, a downtrodden
program on the field, eroding facilities and deteriorating fan support. During his
administration the Badgers eliminated the red ink on the financial ledgers and built a $6
million surplus, won on the playing field at levels never experienced previously, built new
facilities and renovated crumbling ones, and added three new women’s sports. Richter was
responsible for hiring coaching greats, Barry Alvarez, Dick Bennett, and Bo Ryan. Every
program flourished during his administration.

*Football: 3 Big Ten Championships & 3 Rose Bowls
*Men’s Basketball: Big Ten Championships 2002, 2003, 7 NCAA Tournaments, Final Four

*Men’s Hockey: 9 NCAA Tournament appearances, national title in 1990, NCAA runners-up in 1992
& topped the nation in college hockey attendance every season of his tenure. Additionally, Pat’s
son, Barry, was a Badger All-America Defenseman in 1993.

Pat is from Madison, Wisconsin and as a youth participated in Cub Scouts, activities, and
athletics. He excelled in sports and continued to play football, basketball, and baseball at the
University of Wisconsin, setting many records throughout his career. He was a first round draft
pick by the Washington Redskins (1963) and played 8 seasons with the team. Pat Richter has
both a B.S. in Agriculture and J.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Law School. After earning
his law degree in 1971, Pat was employed by Oscar Mayer Foods Corporation and served as the
Vice President of Personnel for 17 years.
Pat and his wife, Renee, have 4 sons and eight grandchildren.
