Steve says the way he got into coaching truly made him love the sport. “Just before I graduated, my high school coach retired, and I actually took over and coached the boys team, at Mercer Island High School. I then started assisting the women’s team at the same time. Learning how to properly coach happened naturally, because the same time I was coaching, I was competing. So I just had fun in the gym, and worked out alongside my athletes. I tried to help them however I could.
