Boys Soccer: Coach helps to instill winning attitude at North Hills

Marky Billson profiles the North Hills boys soccer team.

"If you've ever wanted a former star to take over as the head coach of your favorite team to restore past glories you'll love the story of Jared Steigerwald, the head coach of North Hills' boys soccer team.

In 1999, Steigerwald was the leading scorer and most valuable player on an Indians team that made the state semifinals. But following his graduation, North Hills fell on hard times. When he took over as the head coach last season the Indians hadn't had so much as a winning season in more than a decade.

Now, the sophomores and freshmen who suffered through a 6-12 season in 2013 have been in the WPIAL playoffs twice as juniors and seniors, the first time since Steigerwald suited up that North Hills has enjoyed back-to-back postseason appearances.

"We're not the North Hills of the past," senior captain Nate Kummer said. "We can play soccer.""
