The Buchtel PTA Alumni Committee requested the change to honor former football head coach Richard “Ricky” Powers, a 1990 Buchtel graduate and member of the school’s Division II state football championship team in 1987 and 1988.

Powers played football at the University of Michigan and with the National Football League’s Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. He later served APS as a staff member, coach and mentor for more than 20 years, with Buchtel’s football team going to the state finals in 2010 and named City Series Champions in 2020.
