Samantha Steele - Inspiration for wives & daughters


In a relatively short time, Samantha Steele has burst onto the national college football stage and now holds the prominent position of host of the first hour of College GameDay. This season, in addition to hosting the first hour of GameDay we routinely see her in other segments of GameDay, on the field reporting and throughout ESPN's coverage of games. 

It's hard to believe that Steele just graduated from college three years ago and two years ago she was only doing freelance work for FoxSports. 

With spare time on her hands and a passion for what she did...and a very cute niece...Steele would often film "Monday Morning QB" segments with her niece who she refers to as "Cheeks Magee". Last night Steele tweeted out a link to the video below, saying, "2 years ago...@Cheeksmagee may be making an appearance on the ESPN Cfball app soon. Stay tuned. Miss u Cheeks!

Amazing to think how much Steele's life has changed over the past two years (she was hired by ESPN in July 2011). We hope thousands of young ladies out there find inspiration in Steele's accomplishments. One last note, yes, Steele is the daughter of a coach!
