It was during his stint wrestling for the Shoreham-Wading River high school team that Steven first made his mark in the sport. Competing for the Wildcats, Keith conquered two state titles and three Section 11 (Suffolk County) Championships a good form that caught the attention of the Wrestling USA Magazine who elected the New Yorker as their 2009 Academic Team pick at 119 lbs.
Keith’s success during his high school career was not solely followed by Wrestling USA Magazine, Harvard University was also keeping a close eye on the Long Island native and came to invite Steven to join their wrestling program soon after his high school career ended.
Competing for the Crimson side, Keith earned All American honors at the 2012 NCAA Championships by placing 8th at the National tournament as he went on to conquer 107 wins for the team, a 7th best in career wins for the Harvard team.
After graduating in 2013 with a BA in Economics from Harvard University Keith became a member of the coaching staff at the California Regional Training Center out of Stanford University and head coach at the Cardinal Wrestling Club. These positions preceded Steven’s return to the East Coast where he took the role of Executive Director with Beat the Streets Providence (and later also joined Beat the Streets New York as the Training Center’s Coordinator).
