Steven William Sciullo (born August 27, 1980) is a former American football guard of the National Football League.

Early Life

Sciullo was born on August 27, 1980, to Karen Ann Sciullo, a hair stylist and Mario Sciullo a construction superintendent. He is of Italian and Polish descent. He attended Shaler Area High School, graduating in 1998.

College career

Sciullo played college football at Marshall. He started 52 consecutive games with his college team. He is perhaps best known[by whom?] as one of the two Thundering Herd linemen who carried quarterback Byron Leftwich down the field against Akron, after Leftwich had fractured his tibia earlier in the game.[1]

NFL career

He was originally drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft, starting 13 games as a rookie. He was the fourth offensive lineman in Indianapolis Colts history to start a season opener as a rookie.[2] However, Sciullo failed to make the cut at the training camp in 2004.

The Philadelphia Eagles took Sciullo in four days before the season opener, and he went on to start five times throughout the season on account of Jermane Mayberry's injuries.[original research?] He even participated in Super Bowl XXXIX, losing to the New England Patriots.[citation needed] He retired as a member of the Carolina Panthers in 2007 after a season without any playtime.

Post-football career

Sciullo began working at Hampton Township School District in 2009, teaching at the middle school and high school buildings when needed. Sciullo works as a security director protecting students and teachers as well as administrators.

He became the head coach of the neighboring Deer Lakes High School varsity football team. “The style I teach is a hybrid of Marshall football, Tony Dungy and Indianapolis Colts football, and Andy Reid and Philadelphia Eagles football,” Sciullo says, regarding his coaching methods.[3] In 2015 Sciullo was named as Pittsburgh Steelers' High School Football Coach of the Week.

On January 26, 2016, Sciullo presented the Shaler Area School District with a commemorative Golden Football through the NFL's Super Bowl High School Honor Roll program during halftime at the boys varsity basketball game.[4]

Most recently, Sciullo resigned from head coaching at Deer Lakes Highschool to take a position on the coaching staff of the Hampton Talbots for the 2018-2019 season.[citation needed] Sciullo was recently inducted into Shaler Area High Schools Hall of Fame.
