With the World Cup games about to begin in South Africa, we want you to search your memories for stories about the man who made soccer the sport it is today in Verona, George Stiefbold.
At a recent Board of Education meeting, Verona High School Athletic Director Gary Farishian announced that VHS is planning a ceremony in honor of the man everyone called “Steppy” before the first home soccer game on Tuesday, October 5. VHS soccer alumni who played on a state championship soccer team will also be honored at the event, which will begin at 6:45 p.m.
If you played for Coach Stiefbold and want to share your memories, please send them to Farishian at [email protected].
If you are a veteran of a championship team, send Farishian the years you played and graduated, and whether you will be attending the October event.
