[BIOGRAPHY]

jon rivera was born in florida in 1988, and was raised in puerto rico for four years. there, he learned of good sportsmanship and athletics playing baseball, and hunting. traveling a great distance to litchfield, new hampshire, he met up with group of series 1 and a little of the series2 venis players; the group of friends made vennis and cultivated it into what it is today. though jon rivera may not be as skilled as most of the series 1 vennis players, he has introduced some notable innovations that have greatly cultivated and refined the sport. he was the first to implement and rattify the title technique postion of 'designated server', which is a vennis player who specializes in serving the ball with skill and style, thus making ace serves and further redefining the server's role in the game of vennis. another innovation introduced by rivera was the system of classifying the most critical positions within the court. with these criticals given appropriate labels like 'eastside', westside', 'northpaw', and 'southpaw', this also contributed to the way vennis would be played for years to come. some notable achievements recorded in the vennis archives are two serving records held by jon rivera:
1) no. ace serves within a game [13]
2) no. of ace serves in a row (still within a game) [7].
a personal achievement for jon, however, is the joint-effort forming of the legendary vennis team known as the Krazy Texicans. this team, comprised of Jon Rivera and his best friend of 8 years Steve Hansberry, battled its way through two official vennis tournements victoriously. though he hold many other victories within his career experience, jon said quote,

"though winning is fun, the satisfaction only lasts for moments. healthy competition and good sportsmanship when competing with and against friends in amicable conditions makes for a sport. stay true to your friends and keep the integrity of vennis by not crossing the line between competitive and obnoxious. be fun, be fair, be kool, stay classy, and just have fun…"
-Jon Rivera

other vennis related jobs jon takes up are reffing, record keeping (for player stats), and getting video and still footage of official vennis tournement events. with impartiality, and maturity, Jon Rivera enthusiastically looks forward to the up-and-coming vennis in the new year of 2007. jon cares more for Vennis than himself.
