Steve's expertice in all things sports began well before he was born when his mother was four year letter-woman at the University of Pittsburgh as a forward on the women's basketball team. Her senior year was the first year Title IX was instituted, and during that season, she also won the MVP of the team award.
Steve's athletic apex occurred at the age of 12, when his Little League All-Star team won the PA State Title, he had his picture on the front page of the local paper, and they eventually lost to the future World Series champions, Toms River New Jersey! You might remember that Todd Frasier was on that team...and he now plays 3rd base for the Cincinnati Reds.
Steve had a brief stint playing childhood soccer, when in two years as the goalie, he went 0-21-1. Perhaps this is where Steve's hatred of soccer comes from.
In college at Penn State, Steve did show a proclivity for being a quarterback. During annual Penn State Glee Club pick up football games, QB Steve went a record of 3-1, including a particularly thrilling game on the beaches in Galvaston, TX. If only Steve's dad would have let him play football in high school, he most likely could have been the back up QB, just like Cody (Steve's senior year, Derry Area football went 1-7).
