John Valenti is a dedicated high school football/wrestling / indoor/outdoor track coach and has been for the past 20 years. John has coached in both public and parochial high schools with most of his accolades as the head throws coach for Hasbrouck Heights High School in Bergen County New Jersey. As the throws coach for Hasbrouck Heights, Coach Valenti implemented a very unique strength and conditioning program that constantly challenged his throwers both physically and mentally. This “odd object training” and “core conditioning system” that is so widely used now, has been used by the Hasbrouck Heights throwers for the past 15 years.
As a track coach, John has coached 16 different male and female high school athletes that rank among the top 50 on the Bergen County Track All-Time Performance list, and out of those athletes, 7 of them rank in the top 26 All-Time. Also as a track coach John has coached more 50 plus ft. shot putters in Bergen County than any other track coach in county history, not to mention the 8 different girls that have thrown over 36 plus ft, four of which were 39 ft shot putters. Coach Valenti is also responsible for coaching over 12 1st team All Bergen County Athletes, 55 1st Team All League Athletes, and has coached 18 State Group 1 Champions.
He has had many of his former throwers get accepted to colleges and receive athletic scholarships to schools that include University of Delaware (Irene Cudeno), Monmouth University (Joe Sentipal, Bryan Fill), Coastal Carolina (Bryan Fill), Towson University (Taylor Condal), Felician College (Renee Wilson), as well as the countless number of athletes that have competed in Division 2 and Division 3 schools like Ramapo College, Montclair University, William Paterson, New Haven, and many more. In addition, he has also had 10 of his athletes qualify and be invited to the Penn Relays, also known as The Championship of America, in Shot, Disc and Javelin.
2010 NJ State Coaches Hall of Fame Inductee, Robert Brady stated “Coach Valenti’s training philosophy has taken our throwers, and ultimately our program, to another level. I owe a lot of our team’s success to him and his weight team’s ability to rise to the level of competition and score big points in big meets.”
