Meet Power Slap Striker Vernon Cathey, Ex-Highland Games Competitor

Meet Vernon Cathey — a Highland Games phenom whose freakish combination of strength and athleticism makes him one of the most dangerous people in Power Slap. 

“The Highland Games is a traditional Scottish strongman competition,” Cathey explains … “A bunch of big guys come together, wear kilts, drink beer and have a great time.”

Cathey dominated during his 6 year run on the U.S. Highland Games circuit, being named one of the Top 20 Highland Games athletes in America. 

Before that, the Kansas native was a high school track star who had a friendly rivalry with one of the best athletes to ever come out of the Sunflower State, NFL wide out Jordy Nelson. 

“I was a sprinter and I ran against Jordy Nelson for 4 years of my life. I used to beat him! It wasn’t very often, but it happened!”

Cathey is also a veteran of the USAWA power lifting circuit and says he’s still obsessed with pushing his body as hard as he can.
