Steve is one of my all-time favorite BYU players, not just because of the way he played on the field, but also because of the way he conducted himself off the field.

He took my daughter and her companion (who used to babysit for Steve's children) out to dinner while my daughter was serving in Italy. She described Steve as a perfect gentleman.

Several paintings by his grandmother, a family friend, hang in my parents' home.

My favorite memory of Steve as a football player was him catching the winning TD versus Missouri in the 1983 Holiday Bowl, the season that launched BYU's 1984 Championship run.
