Steve Fullarton - Red Deer College
Steve Fullarton brings 28 years of playing and coaching experience to the Red Deer College Kings Soccer program. Steve spent his entire soccer playing career in his native Scotland and took the step into coaching after moving to Canada in 1994. Steve has had the opportunity to play under and work alongside elite coaches through the years and now finds himself passing the valuable knowledge gained on to the RDC Kings players. Steve has just completed his fifth season in charge of the RDC Kings, going from missing the playoffs in 2011 to a 6-1-3 record and 4th place finish at the Conference Championships in 2012.
Steve has built the soccer program at RDC by placing great emphasis on hard work and discipline as well as a professional approach from the student-athletes both on and off the field. Steve gives a lot of credit for this award to the RDC Athletics Department staff for their fantastic support as well as his coaching staff and the RDC Kings players and hopes that continued commitment and dedication will see the soccer program at RDC continue to flourish.
Congratulations Steve on being recognized by your peers for your work with the Red Deer Kings.
