That's interesting. I've heard he's not sponsored by Innova or Discraft because he throws both so neither company will sponsor him.

Back in the day Rico was sponsored by Discraft. He got in trouble becasue he used to take the hotstamps off Innova discs and throw them. I know he had some Rocs that he drew little Hawks on with a sharpie to try to cover it. The last I saw, he was throwing all Innova except for the Magnet.

Steve is not sponsored by anybody. he owns his own DG course in Sylmar and runs one of the largest pro shops i have ever seen. if you go in there and see a girl working it is his sister. he is a very grass roots like player. i was playing wit him at Sylmar and he had innova and discraft in his bag.

When I played Oak Grove a few weeks ago, everybody I played with or talked to dropped Steve's name. I thought it was cool they were so proud of the local pro.

That would be cool if he could lend some insight to us. I only hear rumors.
