28 MOUNTAINEER — Aug. 3, 2012Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Stephen Wallace Intramural softball player What is your favorite personal sports moment? We were playing in a 36-hour (softball) tournament when ... the center fielder caught the ball and I tagged up from second and raced all the way home to score the winning run. When I decided to take off I never thought about stopping. That run enabled us to win the game and helped us win the tournament. What is your favorite professional sports moment? That would be the Pittsburgh Steelers winning Super Bowl XLIII in Miami. I have been alive for all six of their Super Bowl wins but I really only remember the past two. What is the one thing that you haven’t done in sports that you would like to do? I would like to go to a Pittsburgh Steelers training camp or fantasy camp one year. I think either one of those would be really cool. If you could meet any athlete and spend a day with them who would it be? I would like to be able to talk to Lou Gehrig just because he was a very strong player and was able to deal with the adversity of his disease. I would like to know how he dealt with it, and I also would like to know what it was like to play baseball back in his era. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that … Regardless of the adversity or the circumstances of what I’m dealing with at the time, I will always give 100-percent effort.
