Erie native Stepnoski makes 30th anniversary All-USA Team

USA Today revealed its 30th anniversary American Family Insurance All-USA Team today, and one of Erie’s own was among the stars selected.

Cathedral Prep graduate and former NFL standout center Mark Stepnoski was selected as an offensive lineman to a team that included such stars as Emmitt Smith, Thurman Thomas, Adrian Peterson and Randy Moss.

Stepnoski made the 1984 All-USA team as a senior at Prep.

USA Today noted that Stepnoski was a “five-time Pro Bowler who won two Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys.”

After graduating from Prep, Stepnoski starred at the University of Pittsburgh. He started his NFL career with the Cowboys from 1989-94 before playing for the Houston Oilers (1995-96) and Tennessee Titans (1997-98). He closed his career with the Cowboys (1999-2001). Stepnoski made five straight Pro Bowls from 1992-96.

In 2004, the Erie Times-News selected Stepnoski to the City of Erie All-Time Team.

Check out the entire All-USA Team.
