Steve Underwood is one of those guys who really practices what he preaches.

Originally from Louisiana where he grew up, he later attended Southeast Louisiana before graduating with his undergraduate degree.  He then spent a year at Northeast Louisiana where he earned his masters degree.

He came to Chattanooga for a visit in 1977 and hasn’t left yet.

Steve Underwood is one of those guys who really practices what he preaches.

Originally from Louisiana where he grew up, he later attended Southeast Louisiana before graduating with his undergraduate degree.  He then spent a year at Northeast Louisiana where he earned his masters degree.

He came to Chattanooga for a visit in 1977 and hasn’t left yet.

 

He’s been on the faculty at UTC for the past 37 years, including 33 in a fulltime capacity.  His current title is Associate Professor in the Health and Human Performance department.

He was a track star in high school and was a walk-on at Southeast before earning a scholarship his last three years.  He spent more time injured than he cares to remember, but was the Gulf State Conference champion in the mile his junior year before winning the indoor title his senior year with a personal best of 4:15.1.
