Steve Fitzhugh

Champion for Youth, Motivator, Author, and Humorist

Steve Fitzhugh speaks to thousands of youth each year throughout the country and abroad. His talks help young people make positive choices in life. Steve’s message challenges the students on critical issues of today: from dropping out to academic leadership; from peer pressure to positive values; from alcohol abuse to freedom from the chemical culture. He encourages those students who have made positive choices. Steve’s style is fresh and humorous as he tells about his stories in the NFL (Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns) and his own personal experiences. He identifies with the youth of today. He sees what the students see; he feels what they feel; and he understands their situations.

A native of Akron, Ohio, Steve has been living and working in the Washington D.C. area since the mid 1980's. He is a graduate of Miami University of Ohio where he captained both the track and football teams while earning his B.A. degree in Public Administration.

Steve accepted a contract offer from the Denver Broncos of the NFL immediately after graduation. Sidelined by a shoulder injury after only two years, Mr. Fitzhugh began his Master of Divinity graduate studies at Howard University in Washington D.C. in 1987. Following divinity school, Steve Fitzhugh spent 16 months on Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in Belcourt, North Dakota, where he began drug & alcohol prevention education throughout the public and private school systems.

Today Steve serves nationally and abroad as the executive director of PowerMoves, leading students into success and significance. He also is the national spokesperson for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ "One Way 2 Play - Drug Free" program. And when at home in Washington, DC, you can find Steve at "The House," an after school teen drop-in center he co-founded as a safe place for the students of Southeast DC.

Steve Fitzhugh is also an author, poet, and lyricist. His book, “Who Will Survive?” is a powerful story of a devious scheme to destroy teens and the army charged to execute this plan. His poetry and songs tap into struggles, joys, hearth-aches, love and life’s funny moments to which so many can relate. 

Steve is married and they are the proud parents of two daughters. To book motivational speaker, Steve Fitzhugh, call Executive Speakers Bureau 901-754-9404.

Student, Katie G.

Hi! I just wanted to say that your speech at Good Counsel a week ago was the best one so far. It kept us interested, and it educated us at the same time. Your words were very inspirational and quite entertaining. Most speakers that come there just "push the facts" without bringing it down to a teen level so that we actually understand the consequences of irrational actions. I mean, we hear that we should not do drugs on a regular basis, but hearing that same monotonous phrase all the time can sometimes make us ignore what people are trying to say! Thanks for making the speech so captivating that we all wanted to listen for more. I have never made any regretfull choices, and your speech motivates me to keep on doing the right things in life. Thanks so much. I hope that Good Counsel asks you to come back to for future talks with us. You're truly great!
