He scored 57.75 points, the sixth highest total in school history. He is a three-time District long jump champion (1970, 1972, 1973) and a two-time NWC long jump champion (1972, 1973).

Since graduating, Fike has left behind the rainforests of the Great Northwest for the 300+ days of sunshine in Las Vegas, Nev. "Big R" can be found operating his juggernaut of a T-Shirt factory, BoomTown Trading. "Happy indeed....I never cared much for suits..."
