SHILOH HEAD COACH BRIAN MONTGOMERY
"I've coached Stephen for the last four years and he's been a varsity starter every year. He is just a very well rounded young man - a great athlete that maintains a high GPA and is very active away from football.
"On the field, Stephen's real tough and durable, very fast, and very coachable.
"Stephen's pass rush moves are just unbelievable. When he grows a little, he's going to be a terror to left tackles trying to protect the blindside of a quarterback."
