    Steve was a great guy, football practices were fun and intense with Steve and his locker room music choices were awesome. He was a topic of conversation in Las Vegas from my friends of opposing teams in the valley for his picture in the east Liverpool review, where he wore his patented red head band. My prayers to all his friends and family . He was a great friend and teammate. RIP Steve!

    I can’t believe he’s gone. There’s a hole in my heart. It feels like something is missing. We had so many memories at Tobin Center. We called him Jim. The kids called him Mr Jim. They loved him. Would always speak to him on the street. My favorite thing is the angel pin he gave me at Christmas. We called each other on birthdays and had such a good time talking about the old days. I will miss you my friend but I will see you again.
