Port Chester Police Chief, A Former Rye HS Star Athlete, Now Wrestles With Parkinson’s Disease
*** begin quote ***
Courage, commitment and quiet leadership are common themes in this lifelong Westchester resident’s life.
In 1974, as a sophomore at Rye High School, Richard Conway qualified for the state championships in a sport that relies on stamina, teamwork and tons of training.
What he learned in wrestling carried over to Manhattan College, where Conway played football and eventually became an assistant wrestling coach.
Conway initially thought he’d like to be a teacher, but while taking a walk during his lunch break from a Bronx Catholic school, he crossed paths with a state park policeman. The officer asked Conway if he wanted a part-time job, where he quickly learned he’d be happier as a cop.
