Some 15 years ago, a bright eyed and bushy tailed teacher walked into the Downers Grove Moose to pitch an idea of a Plainfield Girls’ Rugby team. Probably to much of his dismay, Steve agreed! I am thankful for that day and grateful for Steve for allowing that opportunity.

His dedication to Plainfield Rugby is something to admire along with his patience to deal with the drama that ensued with the girls’ team 🙄. His dedication to the club also gave me, as well as many others, the ability to share something we loved, rugby! And for many (hundreds) finding their love of this sport! Plainfield Rugby will always be known for Steve Krause.

To the man of every match, I salute you!
