Meet Rich McGuinness
Architect of Faster2First
A father of two fast pitch softball girls ages 12 and 13 and a travel softball coach, Rich helped develop the Faster2First concept with F2F Softball Director Coach Joe and with the help of several smart college coaches. After building the nation’s biggest football development and showcase program, Rich wanted to do the same in softball believing that fast pitch athletes and coaches deserve a better evaluation experience. He spent two years with top softball coaches, sports scientists and Hall of Fame softball coaches imagining the new world of softball.

Rich was founder of All-American Games and created the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on NBC for the nation’s top 80 football players, the U.S. Army National Underclassman Combine and Football University that trained the 6,000 – 8,000 athletes annually. He also created the National Youth Football Championship, and the Ride, a docu-style reality show about eight under the radar quarterbacks that aired on MTV2, Fox Sports, and NBC Sports Network. He sold his interest in those properties in 2014 to work on new programs like Faster to First.
