Top 10 Scariest Athletes in Sports
These Athletes Will Scare You
You’re looking at one of the scariest individuals you have ever seen in sports...and he's not even in a costume! Halloween is holiday where we enjoy a good scare. Whether it’s from movies, stories or watching a Charlotte Bobcats game, we enjoy the cheap thrill of fright.
Throughout sports, we have plenty of athletes we have labeled scary in their career. Obviously, most of the “scary” athletes are ones who are involved in violent competition, but that doesn’t make them any less scary.
These athletes are frightening for a variety of reason. Athleticism, size, veraciousness and downright meanness can all play a part in why these are scary dudes. Therefore, we bring you 15 of the scariest athletes in sports today.
We wanted to make this an all-time list, but we knew we would have forgotten way, way, way too many frightening foes. For that reason alone, we stuck with the athletes of today. Even though the pool is easier to pick from, we're sure we're forgetting some monsters.
Although most of this is tongue-in-cheek, feel free to disagree with any of our selections and offer your own.
Alas, the 15 athletes in the sporting world that scares me half to death.
