@ Matt Stepp

Matt’s first awareness of football was watching the Chicago Bears pummel the Patriots 46-10 in Super Bowl XX. It grew to a full-blown football addiction after he attended the 2001 3A Division I state title game at Kyle Field when his own Everman Bulldogs beat Sinton 25-14. He is now the ultimate Texas high school football insider, breaking the majority of coaching changes throughout the state every offseason, and appearing at countless football-related events year-round.

His passion for the sport and the people that make it possible is unmatched. His deep ties to the coaching community and knack for spotting teams on the rise make his columns and Twitter account must-follows, whether it’s football season or not. For the three or four minutes each year he is not thinking about football, you can find him hanging out with his wife, travelling or eating Texas barbecue.
