New Jersey State Trooper Anthony Raspa, 24, of Highland Park, New Jersey, was driving his patrol vehicle when he struck a deer, causing him to veer off the road. Raspa was pronounced dead at the hospital on May 30, 2015. "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). His birthdate (Sept. 17, 1990) are represented by the 9, 17, 19 & 90 reps. 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."
