"Stephen has helped me tremendously as an athlete and coach. As an athlete, I trusted him to help coach me in competition and supervise my preparation for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games when my head coach (Don McCauley) was out of town extensively that summer. As a coach, he helped me with coaching my first lifter in competition and pointed out what I needed to pay attention to in the warmup area, and count attempts. Stephen is very knowledgeable in matters of technique and training. and is one of the few coaches I trusted with my career.
