Steve is a well known player and designer in the hockey industry. Soup loves his hockey and his In-n-Out. Last West Coast Narch I asked Steve to join an odd mix of young and old players on our RV Pro Team. In what was best described by Ian Rezac as “Roller Hockey’s version of a Money Ball Team” we found ourselves in the Final and just fell short of winning it all. I remember the locker room right after we lost the final… Obviously no one was satisfied with second place, but a few of the young guys realized they could play at the level and Steve realized he was still an elite player as well. When it came time to put together our Pro Roster for this summer I wanted Steve to be a part of it. You see, as you get older in this sport the young guns come up with speed and skill, but most of them don’t understand how to play the game like the vets. I am looking forward to Soup once again proving he is a Pro that can be a big part of a winning team.

What has your experience playing for RV been like?
One things for sure the team has more heart than I could have ever imagined. Playing on a team with so much effort and the will to win games especially the close ones, makes us a dangerous squad.
