Spring-Ford assistant coach Steve Schein was inducted into the Pennsylvania State Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Sunday, writes Jeff Stover for PA Prep Live.
Schein’s long and fruitful coaching career is nearing its half a century mark. Over the years, he has continued to stress the aspects of teamwork, including winning gracefully and losing graciously, finishing what was started, and discipline.
Thanks to these credos, he managed to achieve more than 100 victories during his 17 years at the helm of the grid program at Upper Merion starting in 1983.
He has also earned numerous other victories in the past 48 years where he assisted various other programs in Southeastern Pennsylvania, including 26 years at Spring-Ford.
“One of the things about Steve is, he’s always been attending clinics,” said SF head coach Chad Brubaker, who nominated Schein for the Hall of Fame. “He’s current in terms of safety and schemes. There’s a tendency for guys who are older, who have been in a system for some time, to stick with what’s there. Steve always stays current.”
