Steve Pierce

Senior Basketball Editor

Steve Pierce loves BYU basketball more than most people love their children (which is fitting, as he doesn't have any of his own quite yet.) He has covered the program for a variety of online outlets, including this one, since 2011 — always with his unique blend of analysis, passion, energy and humor. Steve most recently served as Basketball Editor for Loyal Cougars, but he is excited to return to the friendly confines of Vanquish The Foe. He lives in Washington, DC with his long-suffering wife, who mercifully tolerates his basketball obsession.
