Steve Goff, Jay class of '02

Steve Goff, class of '02, carried Jay to the 2002 Texas High School Basketball State Championship. He led Jay in scoring and rebounding. Steve exploded in the semifinals and finals, averaging 26.5 pts and 11 rebounds while shooting 64.7%. Steve was named the San Antonio Player of the Year. Thanks for bringing San Antonio and Jay H.S. the state championship, Steve!

During the high school FINAL FOUR week, Steve missed the entire week of school and practice while being out-of-town at his dying grandmother's bedside. She raised him and he considered her as a mother. She passed away and Steve actually missed her funeral as it was the same day as the state semifinals. He wept for her and honored her immediately after the miraculous championship game. The miracle was fitting, as he had promised her on her death bed to do his very best to win the championship. Steve played basketball for the St. Mary's Rattlers in San Antonio.
