Steck has anchored the Red Tornado offensive line for the last four seasons from his center position. He has started every game in his high school career (46) joining Mike Higgins, Joe Costello, and Jon Veach as other modern era players to accomplish the fete. Chris was also named to a first team slot by the Pennsylvania Football News and was named by WNEP TV 16 to its annual Dream Team.
