2 year starter, going into his senior year. Currently sits 5th all time in career rushing yards and carries. Averaging over 4 yards per carry for his career.
A versatile running back has also recorded 38 receptions and 353 yards.
His game against Grinnell in 2008 saw him become the first player in Midwest Conference history to surpass 100 yards receiving and rushing in the same game. He ran the ball 37 times for 174 yards and caught 6 passes for 112 yards.
A 2nd team all-conference selection as a sophomore, Brock battled injuries through his junior year to lead the Foresters in Rushing for the third straight year. Going into his senior year, Stenberg will need less than 200 yards to move into 4th place all-time, and less than 500 yards to move into 3rd place.
Tight End of the Decade
TE: Steve Yena- 2007-Current Phoenix, AZ (Basha)Steve is the only player at Lake Forest player to be named all conference at the tight end position in the decade and he did it twice in his first three seasons. Though Yena’s receiving number’s do not stand out as a wide reciever, he is viewed as a stellar blocker. In his junior season, he even saw time as a fullback. His blocking has helped pave the way for the running back of the decade and he was a target for the quarterback of the decade. Yena was voted by his teammates to be a team captain for the 2010 season. In addition to being a 2x all-MWC selection, Yena is a 2x All-Academic Selection for the MWC.
