SFA Athletic Director Retires

For two decades, Alto native Steve McCarty has dedicated much of his life to the success of Stephen F. Austin athletics. Now, the Lumberjacks athletic director is calling it quits.  McCarty has spent the past 15 years as the schools athletic director. During his leadership, SFA has upgraded facilities, several conference championships were brought to Nacogdoches, and most of all, McCarty has been instrumental in making sure Stephen F. Austin was recognized across the nation. So, what prompted the decision to retire?

"I prayed over it heavily," said McCarty, "and thought about it deeply and it's one I feel like that it's time.  I've been in this system and this profession for 40 years, 21 at Stephen F. Austin and 19 great years at the high school level."

The fact of the matter is, McCarty IS SFA.  Most recently, he received the Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award from the All-American Football Foundation.  McCarty's last official day is August 1.  He says he plans to spend a lot of time with his grandchildren.
