“The first thing you notice about Steve is his infectious personality. Always smiling and getting along great with teammates and coaches. What you don’t see right away is his focus and determination to get the job done! He is a tireless worker who makes everyone around him better. I always tell Steve “you’re tied for first as my favorite player”. So true! If I had nine guys like Steve we’d be in the College World Series. I give my highest recommendation possible!"
