Tight End | 6'5 | 235
Reitz Memorial HS | Evansville, Ind.
Reitz Memorial Head Coach John Hurley
"Steven gave our team a tremendous physical presence on the field. He has a great tool set for the (tight end) position and was a big matchup problem for our opponents.
"He has excellent skills. Steven runs very well and he catches the football and runs like a wide receiver. We also inserted Steven at running back late in the season to get him even more involved in our offense.
"Steven will have to get bigger and stronger, but I'm very confident that he'll be able to handle the physicality at the next level."
