Back-Stop injured so many opposing players in junior league hockey that his family had to move to the United States to escape angry parents. During his adolescent years in Detroit, he boxed in the Golden Gloves until he was barred from competition. He spent two terms as the undefeated wrestling champion of his high school simply because no one would get on the mat with him. After a short career in the demolition derby, Back-Stop found his true calling in the Army and eventually on the Joe Team.
"Don't mess with Back-Stop. Even though he's had more broken bones, ripped tendons and severed arteries than anyone else in the Joe Team, he's still strong enough and strong-willed enough to break, rip, or sever something of yours."
