I Am Hampton Roads: Dick Whalen

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – He is the man responsible for popularizing a sand soccer event that takes over the oceanfront every summer.

A Hampton Roads native, retired sailor, and a big part of the area’s soccer community, he’s found a way to combine his passions for family fun, soccer, and Virginia Beach into the annual North American Sand Soccer Championships.

Meet Dick Whalen in this week’s edition of I Am Hampton Roads.
