McKay chooses Huntington

FOR RELEASE
2007-04-04
Huntington University soccer coach Russ Lawson announced the addition of Steven McKay to the 2007 roster. McKay, a local product of Huntington North High School, had an outstanding senior campaign as he helped lead the Vikings to a second place finish in the North Central Conference (NCC) and a Runner-up finish in the Sectional. McKay found the back of the net 25 times earning him a spot on the 2006 NCC All-Conference team and the Indiana State All-District team.
“Steven plays the game with great intensity and at a pace that will add to our team speed,” stated Coach Lawson. “Quickness and physical play are a couple of the biggest barriers to overcome at the collegiate level and Steven strikes the ball well enough and consistently enough to be a source of offense all four years. His transition to the collegiate game should be smooth, allowing him to challenge our returning players for minutes up front. He has great offensive instincts and knows how to finish.”

As a student, McKay will also make an impact in the business department when he enters classes this fall as an HU Honor Award and Youth for Christ Leadership Award recipient.

Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college located in Huntington, IN, with an enrollment of approximately 1000 students. Athletically, HU is a member of the Mid-Central Conference (MCC) and competes in fourteen NAIA intercollegiate sports for both men and women.

Steven is the son of Robert and Cynthia McKay from Huntington, Indiana.
