Head Coach Romeo
Coach Romeo is a West Milford HS graduate, a proud alumni of the WMHS Track team and an accomplished athlete. He competed in High Jump, Triple Jump, Long Jump and short sprints, earning his place as one of West Milford's Top 10 High Jumpers. He is a recipient of the Mr. West Milford Award, and a multi-time All County Athlete in indoor and outdoor High Jump. He closed his career competing in NJ's most prestigious meet- the Meet of Champions- and ranked in the top 40 All State Jumpers.
Coach Romeo found great success bringing multiple first-year athletes to State, Regional and National meets. He believes success is driven through enjoyment and believes in motivating his athletes to excel for themselves and the thrill of the sport. Track has always been a passion for Coach Romeo and he is ecstatic to pass on his love of this sport to new athletes.
His coaching style is to motivate the team to push their own boundaries, anchored in a believe that athletes- not coaches- create their own success. He feels that with the right motivation all athletes can succeed.
"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to be the Jr. Highlander's Head Coach. I know that this year will be both fun and challenging for everyone involved. The growth of the program in the past year is tremendous and all of us are anxious to see how far we can take the program. The returning student Athletes bring a hunger for success that I hope will spread throughout the team and give us a solid foundation to grow from.
Track is an enjoyable sport because success isn't measured in ribbons, medals and trophies; success is measured by personal bests. Every week athletes go out and compete against every athlete on the track including themselves. That is what makes Track special.
Track is the most versatile sport there is; it will always have a special place in my heart. Track & Field- the sport and coaches- helped shape me into the person I am today. Without the WM Track Team I would not have some of the most influential people in my life. I look forward to hopefully influencing and motivating athletes for years to come and to help ensure the future of WM Track & Field."
