About this Article
David Dick knows he will face all kinds of challenges when he officially takes over as Fremd High School's athletic director in July. One he'll face down the road is the potential for a house divided. Dick and his wife Jennifer have a daughter Rhiann (11 years old) and sons D.J. (9) and Darrin (5) who will eventually go to Palatine High School. "That should make for an interesting cross-town situation," David Dick said with a laugh of his kids who are all involved in sports. But that's a future "problem." Dick said his family is thrilled about his opportunity to lead an athletic department after more than 20 years as a coach and administrator at Barrington. Dick will replace Augie Fontanetta, who is moving up to oversee athletics for all five District 211 schools. Dick was the athletic director at Barrington Middle School for eight years and he also spent the last two years assisting in the high school's athletic department thanks to a plan by principal Steve McWilliams and athletic director Mike Obsuszt.
