There is a hidden gem in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and he goes by the name of Steven Banks. Banks is a multi-sport athlete who is entering his senior season as a Belfry Pirate. Banks plays basketball, football, and baseball for his pirates squad.
Last season, Banks would compile quite the sports resume. He earned honors as a D&D Sports Network First Team All-Mountain member in baseball. Banks has also made all district and all region teams since he was a sophomore. To top off this impressive resume, he also received an offer from the University of Pikeville to play football. This young man can do it all!
