In late April, Don returned to his old high school to compete in the 13th annual Tocco Challenge. 7 students competed against Don in a basketball shootout, throwing passes to receivers with a football and then hitting the 83 MPH fastball in the batting cage. Each year, if any student has a higher score than him, Don increases the amount of money donated to the athletic department. The 2012 event went to Mr. Tocco by a narrow margin, but the students vow to beat him next year. For more information on this event contact Vic Breithaupt, Athletic Director, at (313) 580-5131.
