After a childhood marred by the horrors of the Roger Reid administration, Steve somehow survived with his love for basketball intact and now heads up Vanquish The Foe's hoops coverage. Prior to joining the team, he was the founder and editor of Post-Jimmer, a relatively decent BYU basketball blog that nobody actually read. Steve lives in the Washington, DC area with his long-suffering wife, who mercifully tolerates his basketball obsession.
