Steve Sanders was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio where he graduated from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District in 2001.

Sanders finished his college football career with impressive career stats landing him honors as one of BGSU’s All-Time leading wide receivers.

As part of his life commitment to directly impacting young people who have come from similar environments, in 2011 Sanders announced the opening of The Steve Sanders Academy, an Ohio Community School in his old community.

He is also one of the first professional athletes to willingly step away from his childhood dream of playing professional football to commit his life to directly impacting the youth by opening a charter school. In addition to his playing career and philanthropy, Steve Sanders recently launched Training Camp For Life, a nonprofit organization created to inspire, impact and influence young male students and student-athletes in all aspects of sports and life. His new book “Training Camp For Life: Developing Champions In Sports and In Life” is released May 1, 2014.
