However, since being diagnosed a year ago, Tuggle has not missed a single game or a practice. And he’s pushing on with a positive attitude.

“I don’t know how I can say this because I don’t want cancer, but it has been good because I feel like I have made an impact,” Tuggle said.

His daughter Lauren is always close by. She works as a nurse at Greensboro College and was one of the first to find out about the cancer.

“I know the battle is hard but I know my dad is strong,” Lauren said. “I know he’s stronger than any cancer and also know God is bigger than any cancer”.

(Randy Tuggle starred in both basketball and baseball, in his playing days/student days as an NWG Viking, at Northwest Guilford High School.)

    I have played a lot of basketball against Randy over the years and he is one of the best guys around. I pray for him in his fight with cancer and I wish him only the best.

    I have always heard he/Randy Tuggle was a heck of a basketball player back in his time and that he continued to play over the years and might have played college basketball at UNCG…Very good high school baseball player back in his day as well….

    I have been following Greensboro College basketball for years. But unfortunately he has had to miss practices and games. He has great asst coaches that have stepped up in his absence. I believe one of his asst that has been covering games for him is one of his former players from Northern Guilford.
