It was four years ago today that James Volpe died as a result of injuries he suffered while a passenger in a car driven by one of his Jackson Memorial High School baseball teammates as they returned from a game. He was 17 years old.
In March Alec Donovan of Brick Memorial capped his high school wrestling career by winning the 145-pound state championship and two months later he’s in the headlines for doing something that takes more guts and determination than what he did on the wrestling mat in Atlantic City.
It was a perfect ending to Mother’s Day for me and the mother of my two children. Jane was on the couch and I was in the leather chair and we were screaming at the TV watching the Rangers desperately hang on to beat the Capitals and force a 7th and deciding game in their Stanley Cup Playoff series.
