After reading O-R staff writer F. Dale Lolley's story () on UFC fighter and former Waynesburg High multi-sport standout Josh Koscheck, I got to thinking about other tough guys I've covered since joining the paper in 1999.
A couple football players that immediately come to mind are Waynesburg's Lanfer Simpson and a couple guys from Wash High - Dan Mozes and Tommy Sypula. Carmichaels' Bobby Hathaway also fits the mold. He destroyed people in high school, as did Monessen's Mick Williams. I'd also throw California's Donte Valentino into the mix. To break the tackles he does at his size, speaks to his toughness and desire to compete.
So which legit tough guys am I missing?
