These players were gritty and played super hard. These players won awards and even championships. Unfortunately we did not keep full time stats on these players. We only have memories with some recorded scratchy writing in notebooks. Here is a look at the 3 greatest over the years:

Johnny earned his nickname “The Legend of Johnny V” after becoming a hero in his home town by catching a known child molestor by the name of Joe Grammy. Grammy was preying on children in a local park when Vowteras confronted him. The perp would routinely drive a yellow Yugo and video tape children he was going to abduct paralyzing the local town with fear. On this occasion Vowteras saw Grammy taping and went to the car and ripped the perp out of the car and leveled him to the ground. He then confiscated Grammy’s video which was found to have the man engaging in sick acts with minors. Grammy was found guilty to multiple counts of child abuse and sentenced to 25 years without parole. “Legend of Johnny V” was originally stated by the local tv reporter as he reported the story on the news.
