Excessive Faculty Soccer: Holmen’s Steve King and his household on the HOF launch | Put together soccer
Steve King has never been one to blow his own horn.
He is proud of everything he has achieved as a teacher and football coach at Holmen High School, but it is not easy for him to put that into words. He’d rather leave her alone.
When King learned he had secured a spot in the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame, background information had to be submitted for his plaque and shared at a banquet with a room full of people.
It wasn’t a pleasant experience.
“If you send this information in, it will tell you it is not time to hold back,” King said. “They tell you it’s your night and you should brag about your accomplishments, so to speak.
“It took me a while to do this because it’s just not something I like to do.”

King’s accomplishments were shared with peers and many family members last weekend in Middleton when he was part of an introductory course for five in 2021. A 2020 10-person class was also there after missing its scheduled launch a year ago.
And he enjoyed being honored with a group of 32 friends and family by his side. King had an immediate family and an extended family who made the trip to Middleton and shared the moment with him, and that, he said, was what made the night up.
