Annual Panza Lecture with Steve Emt: Paralympic Athlete

Thursday, November 8, 2018


Steve Emt has been an athlete his entire life. In high school he lettered in three different sports, finishing his high school career as an All-New England soccer goalkeeper and an All-State basketball player. He is the all-time leading scorer in the history of his high school for boy's basketball, and his abilities brought him to the University of Connecticut where he earned a spot on the men's basketball team as a walk on from 1992-1994. Things changed for Steve in 1995 when he was involved in a car accident which left him paralyzed. He is now a paralympic athlete in curling. He shares his story of overcoming life's challenges, achieving his dreams on and off the ice while inspiring others to achieve their dreams in the face of adversity, and his journey to compete on the world's stage.
