Deyne Richardson

What’s up y’all, I’m Deyne Richardson! A 28-year-old man from Youngstown, Ohio; moved to Beaver Falls in 8th grade. I graduated from Beaver Falls High School in 2012 and have been trying to better myself and my city since then! Most of the kids in Beaver Falls affectionately call me Mr. Deyne or Coach Deyne because I’ve been working in the community with the kids for almost a decade of my life! Thanks to Tiger Pause I’ve found something I really love doing and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
– Deyne Richardson

In the 1920s actors such as Rudolph Valentino were referred to as tall, dark, and handsome. A phrase that refers to an appealing man often found in romantic fiction. When Mr. Deyne arrived at Tiger Pause nine years ago; he was not only that; but strong, loud, and playful making him a treasured worker on the truck, in the classroom, or on the playground.

Now, like Lorenzo Anello says in the movie, A Bronx Tale, “You can have all the talent in the world, but if you don’t do the right thing then nothing happens, but when you do right guess what good things happen.”

Tiger pause is blessed to walk alongside Mr. Deyne in life, seeing him doing the right thing and avoiding becoming wasted talent.
