SM West football player fends off knife-wielding muggers

Two would-be muggers at a Topeka gas station got more than they bargained for when they tried to rob former Shawnee Mission West running back Brett Sterbach around 11 p.m. Saturday. The 5-foot-7, 155-pound Sterbach, returning home from an all-star game, wrested a knife away from one assailant, suffering a stab wound in his thigh, then fought off both men, forcing them to flee.
