A former Cork Minor Captain, Stephen first played hurling in street leagues with his club, Glen Rovers. His favourite sports other than hurling are soccer and boxing, and as a child he wanted to be Muhammed Ali. His best hurling memory as a player is winning the U21 County Championship, and he also claims to be good at dancing... The greatest player he has ever seen is Tommy Walsh, and he would buy him if there was a transfer market in hurling. Marooned on a desert island, he would not be without his ipod.
