A letterman's Sun Devil legacy

November 09, 2015

Steve Turkovich is a family man and a Sun Devil — and the two parts of his life are often inseparable.

Recruited by Frank Kush straight out of Donora, Pennsylvania, Turkovich came to Arizona State University in 1960 and never looked back. A true Sun Devil fan, he and his family have been season ticket holders since 1965. Turkovich supports the team's current football players with advice and guidance, and he can often be found in the Pat Tillman Tunnel rooting on the ASU Sun Devils.
