Steven Martin was born May 31, 1974 to Henry and Dorothy Martin in St. Paul
Minnesota. The family moved to Jefferson City Missouri in 1975 until his parents divorced in 1983 when Steven moved back to Minnesota with is mother and brother Matthew and Sister Cindy. Steven then moved back to Missouri in 1989 where he became a part of the legendary football program in Jefferson City Missouri under Pete Adkins. He finished his high school career with 3 state titles and 1 semi championship runner up in his 4 years there. He received All-State and all-American honors at Jefferson City. He then went on to the University of Missouri Columbia where he was a four-year starter with the first 2 under Bob Stull, and his last 2 under Larry Smith. He was 3 time All Big 8 and received Defensive MVP and Team MVP his senior year. He was then drafted into the NFL as the 171 st pick in the 1996 draft. Steven then had 9 credited seasons in the NFL with the Colts, Eagles, Chiefs, Jets, Patriots, Texans, and Vikings.
"After playing 10 years in the NFL and observing every aspect of the game on every level, I have noticed the lack of attention to fundamentals. Players are studying longer and harder but not achieving the desired performance that is demanded on the next level. It is essential that players understand how to make their bodies achieve un-natural positions against their natural instincts. We must retrain these instincts."
Since retiring Steve and his family has made Kansas City (northland), his home. He has spent countless hours volunteer coaching for youth football organizations for over 16 years and is in his 3rd year coaching at Park Hill South High School.
Our focus is on guiding our youth ages 5 to 14 to build character, sportsmanship, self-confidence and learn responsibility & teamwork in a competitive environment while gaining a strong sense of community. The goals of the program are to develop a sense of achievement, leadership skills, and a positive self-image for all participants. SOAR Football provides a safe, structured and secure environment for the children to learn these life skills. Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of football and Cheer leading in an atmosphere where fun is the primary goal
