"Steve is a very gifted athlete with tremendous speed and awareness. He has been on our radar for a while so it's nice to have him on board and in an Express uniform. He has that big play potential and you can never have enough guys with that skill set. We are blessed to have him on board and are expecting a great season from him in 2023"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.

Steve saw his first action in an Express uniform last week and looked very impressive.
