Head Coach Casey Alexander on Steve Drabyn
"Steve is a basketball purist and his excitement for the game will be contagious among our players. He does a great job on the floor and will play a significant role in workouts, practice and scouting. I've said many times that Steve sets the bar high for what it means to be a teammate. His selflessness and desire to see the team do well will be a great model for our players."
