 Trooper Anthony Raspa, 24, of Highland Park, New Jersey, was was a New Jersey State Trooper, who while driving his patrol vehicle struck a deer and then ran off the road. Raspa was pronounced dead at the hospital. "We had him for a short time, a year and a half. He graduated from the academy in October 2013 and now we're burying him, someone who had really the promise of a tremendous career."

Raspa was dedicated to physical fitness. He used to do crew, so the WOD opens with a long row (the 7,425m row represents his New Jersey State Trooper number). The the 9, 17, 19 & 90 represent his birth date (Sept. 17, 1990) and the 145 represents his Senior year wrestling weight class. The exercises chosen are wrestling & football strength and conditioning movements; sit-ups are from the New Jersey State Police fitness test. "Anthony was a strong, motivated, talented, generous one of a kind person and this is just a small way to remember him."
