The greatest thrower in New Jersey track and field history paid a holiday visit this week to his alma mater, Morristown High School.
Nick Vena, the gentle giant who hurled the shot more than 70 feet an astonishing 96 times during his MHS career, is a second-team All-American at the University of Georgia, where he is a junior.
Nick transferred there from Virginia after his freshman year.
Our thanks to Jake Goldberg of Morristown High’s Colonial Corner, who caught up with Nick in this video.
