We asked founder Steve Reynolds how did he get the vision for MKU Athletics he says "With a single prayer i asked God what he wants from me, 3 days later I had a vision of him not playing football anymore. At that time i was playing professional Arena Football. That's when i started having ideas and concepts, about what i'm doing today. I just start doodling a drawing, then it went to all start games, camps, and more." He says his son was 5 yrs old when he said he was bored and didnt have nothing to do. So Steve started creating programs and camps with that concept in mind. If your from Akron or even from anywhere you have the chance for exposure. Only has a chosen few made it out of Akron, and that only leaves people wondering how the person got out. Most Known Unknown wanted to get kids and people exposure on a bigger stage. Helping over 300 kids in college. MKU became the athletic "plug" not by chance but through hard work, and dedication
