Stephen Stepka to play as walk-on for Georgetown

Looks like the basketball team has a new addition: Stephen Stepka, a 6’6″ Forward and Guard, will be accepting an offer to be a walk-on player for Georgetown, according to HoyaBalla.

Stepka, who attended W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, VA, averaged more than 17 points per game during the 2008-09 season, according to the Post.  He was also ranked the 26th best senior in the D.C.—Maryland—Virginia area by Capitol Hoops.

In an interview with HoyaBalla, Stepka talked about why he chose Georgetown and what he sees his role on the team being:

HB: You did have some DI interest, so why have you elected to walk on rather than play elsewhere?

Stephen: “Well I have always known like many others that Georgetown is a very prestigious school when it comes to basketball and academics. When the chance to come play here came up I felt it was an opportunity that could change my life. I’ve always kind of followed them and heard about their history.” …

HB: What do you hope to bring to the team, in practice, off the floor and on it?

“Being a walk on I do not expect to be coming in and playing right away but somethings I feel I can bring to the team is hard work, putting forth great effort, and playing smart basketball. I am a pretty good shooter and have always been a good offensive player but I know I have plenty of things to work on and will fill the role I’m asked to fill.”

  1. I wonder if the outgoing walk-on gets to choose the new one. That would be a grand tradition.
