Ricky was an All-State athlete in basketball, football, track, and a high school basketball McDonald's All-American nominee.

McCollum accepted a Division I football scholarship to play at the University of Connecticut (UConn) where he received his Bachelor's degree in Human Development. In addition to McCollum’s athletic accolades, he also received a master's degree in counseling at Pace University.

He brought a culture of discipline and work ethic to the Vaughn College Warriors.
In his spare time, McCollum enjoys hitting the weight room, long runs with his better half, watching movies with his son, traveling the world, cards, and competing in random challenges with family and friends. Ricky recently joined the Vermont Air National Guard in 2020 as a reserve and volunteers around town with youth in the community. Ricky currently resides in Hinesburg with his family.
At LFM, McCollum looks to create an environment that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion; fostering a culture that develops community residents holistically, providing them with experiences that last a lifetime.
