April 17, 2018 Happy Birthday William Steuk

Posted on April 17, 2018 by Barry Gallagher

Today is a good day to celebrate the Happy Birthday of a Michigan Man William Steuk. According to the 1991 Michigan Media Guide, William “Bill” Steuk was born on this day in Ohio. He grew up in Sandusky, Ohio. William starred on both sides of the ball at Sandusky High School. He was Ohio’s Division I Offensive Lineman of the Year in 1988.

William Steuk was recruited to play on Bo’s defensive line at Michigan. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out that way. The 1991 Michigan Media Guide stated that Steuk did not see any game action as a defensive lineman in 1989 or 1990.

In the 1991 Michigan Football Media Guide Bill was described as “a fast, tough player who is adjusting to the outside linebacker position after moving from defensive tackle….” (Page 68) Unfortunately, a new position did not allow Steuk to crack the starting lineup in 1991 or 1992.

Although Bill Steuk didn’t start any games in 1991, he did play in nine games during his last two years. After playing in two games in 1991, Steuk played in nine games in 1992. He recorded tackles in five of the seven games he played in during his last game. William Steuk earned his first letter and his M-Ring at the end of the 1992 season.

William Steuk is one of a very few Michigan Men who can say he was part of four Big Ten Championship teams! Wow – that sounds amazing, especially since the Wolverines haven’t won any since 2004. Ouch!

The bad news is that Bill Steuk was a very good player who got caught up in the timing and numbers game. The good news is that he left Ann Arbor with an education and lots of memories and friendships. He did everything that the coaches asked him to do and you can’t do much better than that!

So, today is a good day to wish Michigan man William Steuk a very “Happy Birthday. Thanks for your contributions to the great history of Michigan Football – the winningest program in the history of college football. Go Blue!

Tom Harmon was a multi-talented player who could do just about everything on the football field. His unique skill set enabled him to star on offense (run, pass and catch) defense (cover and tackle) and special teams (punt and place kick).

In 1939, Harmon scored 102 points (14 touchdowns, 1 field goal and 15 extra points). He led Michigan, the Big Ten and all of college football in scoring that year. Oh, by the way, he finished second in the balloting for the Heisman Trophy.

Harmon returned to the field in 1940 and picked right up where he left off in 1939. He scored 16 more touchdowns, 1 more field goal and 18 extra points. Once again, he was the leading scorer in all of college football with 117 points. And yes, he won the Heisman Trophy for his efforts.
