Steve Mussack '67
He was the third of ten brothers and sisters in a very competitive athletic family. He came to Chaminade in 1966 for his senior year of high school.
Playing baseball and running track were his specialties at
Chaminade. He excelled as the catcher in baseball and held the record for stolen bases (22) that year, but because Chaminade was not part of CIF yet, it was not recorded. To illustrate just how talented Steve was, the Dodgers invited him to try out. He did not make the team, but he continued with his love of sports.
Attending San Fernando Valley State College, as CSUN was known then, he pursued a degree in physical education. After college, he began teaching and coaching basketball at Chaminade. He served as principal of Chaminade’s middle school in the 1980s, and during his time as principal he attended every Chaminade athletic event that he was able to. Steve was also very involved in the High Sierra Backpacking Club at Chaminade. He ran the club from the late 1970s through the rest of his life. In June 2004, he became the 128th person to reach the highest point in each of the 50 United States.
As a parent, he encouraged and assisted his children, who are Chaminade alumni as well, in their cross-country, volleyball, soccer, and softball careers at Chaminade. During the 2002 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies Torch Run, Stephen had the honor of carrying the Olympic Torch through part of northern California.
