Stevo Poulin

Badass of the week: Stevo Poulin of Schuylerville.

The 8-year-old and his mohawk have piled up a 256-26 record on the youth wrestling circuit. He's been described as "a blitzkrieg of speed, strength and know-how" who "scarifies" grown men -- or simply "a bad little man."

That highlight video above has been viewed on YouTube more than 6 million times. Behold the strut as he walks onto the mat.

When not blitzing his opponents, Stevo enjoys dominating spelling and math tests. He also has an outdoor cat who eats mice.

impressive skills, but the maniacal intimidation is a bit much.

I'm not sure we want to refer to an 8-year-old boy as a "badass". We don't need to turn him into a thug. Instead, let's help him become an outstanding student athlete. It looks like he is off to a good start!

WNYT did a cool story on this kid. It's fun watching him take down Dan Bazile.
