For his size, in his day NOBODY was tougher than Danny Hodge. Not only won the NCAA wrestling title without giving up a single point, went on with zero experience to win the National Golden Gloves, undefeated as a pro boxer, Olmpian in wrestling, unbelievable tendon strength in his hands - made the “watermelon challenge” look like child’s play. This guy bent large pipe wrenches and snapped pliers. At age 75 he could still crush an apple with either hand. He ran his car off a cliff into a ravine one night after falling asleep. It was over 150 ft. down. The car was submerged in a ravine upside down. Danny smashed all his teeth to shreds, had a huge cut, a bad concussion, a broken wrist and a freaking broken neck. So he punches out the windshield, swims out of the ravine with his good arm while holding his broken neck in place with his broken wrist. Climbs up the embankment still holding his neck in place, and starts walking until a trucker picks him up. Now that’s bad ass! He was also a professional wrestler after all his amateur competition. The highest honor an amateur wrestler can win , like the Heisman is called the Hodge Award - that is not a coincidence... and that my friends is not a pussy! If MMA were around in his day he would have ruled, he could take you down or knock you out. Break your bones or submit you with a simple grip and was tougher than hell. A super intelligent and wonderful guy as well. He worked with some of my wrestlers at a camp. Dude is a true legend.
