To say Steve is focused and committed to being great is to sell his efforts short.  Relentless in his physical and skill enhancements, Steve leads a life that demonstrates his passion whether it is with his diet, his workouts, or his extra shooting sessions.  Last year, Steve became a starting defensive midfielder.  He relished the playing time and the pressure that came with that position, often being left out on the proverbial island.  His extra shooting has paid off as he will be asked to play more of an offensive role for us in 2012.
