STEVE NASH

Stephen John Nash otherwise known as Steve Nash was born on Feb 7, 1974 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He moved to Regina, Saskatchewan when he was 18 months old. Not too long after he moved to Vancouver and then settled in Victoria, BC. His parents are John Nash and Jean Nash. He also has a brother named Martin and a sister named Joann. His brother plays in the MLS (Major League Soccer) and his sister was the captain of the University Of Victoria womens soccer team for 3 years. Steve Nash has a wife named Alejandra and twin girls named Lola and Bella. In highschool Steve Nash led his team to the British Columbia AAA championship and was named the provinces player of the year. After that his higschool coach sent video footage to over 30 American universities but no one wanted him. Until the Santa Clara coach requested footage. He saw Nash play and thought he was pretty good but said he was the “worst defensive player he has ever seen”.He got a scholarshop for the 1992-1993 season.The Santa Clara Broncos had not appeared in the NCAA tournament for the past 5 years. This changed when Steve Nash came. He led the Broncos to the West Conference title and upset the No.2 Seed Arizona. He entered the draft for the 1995-1996 season and was drafted by the Phoenix Suns but got booed because he wasn’t who the fans wanted. So he got trade to the Dallas Mavericks where he became a star. After two years he got signed again by the Phoenix Suns where he has stayed. Steve Nash was born in an athletic family. His father played semi-professional soccer and his mother played netball (Basketball without the running). I think this is what made Steve Nash pursue his dream. It didn’t matter what the weather was outside he would practice in it. He told his mother that one day he would be in the NBA. Also I wouldn’t think he would want to be the only one in the family that didn’t have a career in sports (His brother and sister are both good soccer

His light verse even earned him a place on a postage stamp. His poems contain uneven lines that all rhyme, and he even made up spellings to words to achieve the best effect. Frederick Ogden Nash was born August 19, 1902, in New York. His family thought that education was very important, and this was the basis for his love of languages…
