Steven Keith: Record, Net Worth, Weight, Age & More!
Who is Steven Keith?
Steven Keith is an All-American wrestler who competed for Harvard from 2009 to 2013. He was a four time qualifier for NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships, capping it off with All-American honors in 2012. After graduating, Steven Keith made it his mission to share the power of wrestling with others by joining the coaching staff at several prestigious schools, including Brown, Stanford, NYU, and Johnson & Wales University. He is the former executive director of Beat the Streets Providence and current training center coordinator of Beat the Streets NYC.
Keith’s career started strong in High school, where he was a Junior National All-American and named three separate times as an All-State honoree. He won state titles as both a sophomore and a senior in high school, and was a three-time section XI champion. He left his senior year with a bang, wrestling to an impressive 46-0.
Steven Keith entered Harvard in 2009, where he earned a hard-fought 20-12 record and qualified for the NCAA Division I Championships. That year, he also finished third at the EIWA Championships. His sophomore year was very similar to his first: he qualified for the NCAA tournament, came in fourth place at the EIWA Championships, and had an overall record of 23-17. He also competed in the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational.
His Junior year was a standout in his college career, as he finally placed at the NCAA championships, coming in 8th. He again won 3rd at the EIWA Championships, this time turning in a season long record of 34-11, which ranked 6th on Harvard’s all time single-season win list. To crown this amazing season, Steven Keith was finally awarded All-American honors during his third year at Harvard.
Keith’s fourth and final year as a Harvard wrestler saw him take down several ranked opponents and cross the 100-win mark. Although he was not able to place in the NCAA Championship that year, going 2-2, he again placed fourth at the EIWA Championships.
After he graduated in 2013, Steven became an assistant coach for Stanford University’s wrestling program and a head coach for a local youth wrestling mentorship program, the Cardinal Wrestling Club. Continuing his career as a coach, Keith was an assistant coach at both Johnson & Wales University and Brown University between 2016 and 1018.
It was during this time at Brown that Keith became the Executive Director of a youth outreach program called Beat the Streets Providence. In the Beat the Street program, student-athletes from underprivileged areas are given the resources, tools, and mentorship to achieve success, both on the mats and in life. After years of serving the Providence initiative, Keith eventually moved to New York City to take over as the training center coordinator for that chapter of the program.
In 2019, after years of coaching adults and youth, he also signed on with NYU to coach the lighter weight classes and to manage practice time with the team.
