Rick Long.

Attended Powell H.S. where I was the senior class president and voted top ten senior in my class.

Graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1980 with a B.S. in Communications.

I am a major fan of all UT sports and attend as many games per year as I can.

My hobbies include golf, bowling, gardening and raising hound dogs. My basset hound named Otis is 12 years old.

I am the past president of the Knox North Lions club and currently serve as secretary.  I have been a Lion for over 10 years. I am also in charge of the Angel Tree shopping every Christmas, coat drives, school supply drives and many other activities for Whittle Middle School through the Knox North Lions.

I was in the restaurant business for 25 years before I got into real estate as a general manager, area supervisor and corporate trouble shooter for Ruby Tuesday, TGI Fridays, Shells and Applebees.

I have two children that are both in their 20’s.  My daughter Riley is married and graduated cum laude from Carson Newman is child psychology and is currently attending graduate school at UT in the psychology department.  My son Nick is also a UT grad and is a restaurant manager.

I have been happily divorced for 15 years after being married for 21 years.

I enjoy golfing trips to Florida when I can find the time and enjoy spending time with my kids when they can find the time.

I also enjoy playing dice and board games with my 86 year old mother even though she wins most of the time.

I also enjoy weekly bowling with my bother Gary and our old friends from the neighborhood in Pleasant Ridge.
