Steve Korcheck was also a star football player at George Washington University , so good in fact he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 1954 NFL Draft (3rd round, 35th overall). One additional reason why he was inducted into the GWU Hall of Fame:

STEVE KORCHECK: 1975 ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

Steve Korcheck ('53) played varsity baseball from 1952 through '54 and played on the offensive line for the varsity football team from 1951-'53, captaining the football team his senior year. He was also the the Southern Conference's Player of the Year in football, Touchdown Club Area Player of the Year, and a third team All-America selection of the Associated Press, all during his senior year. In addition, Korcheck earned All-Conference honors in baseball.

With strengths in two sports, Korcheck was drafted by both the Washington Senators and the San Francisco 49ers, but ultimately chose baseball. He went on to play professional baseball in 1954 and 1955 as a catcher for the Senators, hitting .278 for the Senators in 1955. He was slated for the starting berth in 1956 but was called into the Army. He spent one year with the U.S. Army, and played again for the Senators from 1958-'60. He returned to GW from 1966-'70 as head baseball coach and while there, earned his MA in 1966 and his EdD in 1970. He then taught as an instructor for the Kansas City Royals. He moved to Manatee Community College (now State College of Florida-Manatee) in Bradenton, Fla., where he served as president.
