Dominick (Nick) Caputo

Who was Nick Caputo?  In college he played football for Utah State and while he played he was frequently mentioned in Utah newspapers.  As it says in the obituary below he went on to become an instructor at Highland, a director of the Rotary Boys Club in Salt Lake City and a corrective therapist at the Veterans Administration.  Nick Caputo passed away in March of 1960 at the young age of 37.  He was so admired that Highland and his family agreed that an annual award would be presented in his name to the top male, senior, student/athlete and leader.  The first Nick Caputo Award was presented the year he passed away, 1960, to Wayne Smith.
