NEW MIDDLETOWN, OH- Springfield Senior, Dante Argiro has no white flag to wave, no towel to throw in, and certainly doesn’t acknowledge the word ‘surrender’ in any dictionary.
Adversity has had its fair share of punches for the Tiger #9 over the past year or so, Dante had a knee injury that kept him on the sidelines for much of 2019 and injured his hand in 2020. However, it was the courage and strength of Argiro’s family that kept him fighting to get back on the field with his teammates, and to finish what he began as a freshman.
Argiro has come back from injury to lock down his spot as an incredible defender and leader on this Tiger team. Now, as the Tigers prepare to battle for the state title, Argiro pushes his message of never giving in to his teammates, and shares some of his stories from his time at Springfield with us on this week’s Springfield Player Profile.
