Sports' Scariest Athletes

Just in time for Halloween, Kidzworld looks at some of the most frightening athletes from the world of sports.

Scariest Athletes - Leonard Davis

Leonard Davis Standing 6'6" tall and tipping the scales at 392 pounds, Leonard Davis is one large man. He is also the starting guard for the Dallas Cowboys. Besides looking big and scary, Davis is the NFL's heaviest player! Leonard is nicknamed BIGG, for obvious reasons, and has weighed more than 300 pounds since he was in seventh grade. He has a mean scowl and kind of resembles Mr. T. Make sure you don't steal any of his candy this Halloween!

Scariest Athletes - Scott Parker

Scott Parker You definitely don't want to be playing any Halloween tricks in Scott Parker's neighborhood. This bearded and tattooed forward for the San Jose Sharks is known more for his fast fists than his smooth stick handling. He's nicknamed The Sheriff for the way he keeps order on the ice - but the 6'5" winger is more than capable of creating chaos as well. In 2006, he was suspended for two games for jumping the glass between the players' benches to fight Nashville defenceman, Brendan Witt. If this scary figure answers the door when you're trick or treating, just back away and say, "Oops, sorry, wrong door."

Scariest Athletes - Sonya Thomas

Sonya Thomas A.K.A. The Black Widow Don't be fooled by Sonya Thomas' slender frame and sweet smile. Sonya earned the nickname The Black Widow after setting more than a dozen frightening records in competitive eating. Her frightening food feats include eating 65 hard boiled eggs in less than seven minutes and wolfing down 11 pounds of cheesecake in nine minutes. Not someone you want to let anywhere near your trick or treating stash!

Scariest Athletes - Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson Whether he's biting his opponent's ears or threatening to eat young children, boxer Mike Tyson is probably not someone you'd want to run into at a deserted graveyard on Halloween night. While the former heavyweight champion of the world doesn't win many boxing fights any more, his evil grimace and the Maori tribal tattoo that covers his face, still makes him one very frightening fellow!
