Sad news for the Utah family with the passing of former Ute Steve McKane, who suffered an apparent heart attack Tuesday at the age of 38.
McKane, who was serving as the coach Florence H.S. in Arizona, was an offensive lineman for the Utes from 1997-2000.
His career was cut short with knee injuries, but he was known for his leadership and hustle. As a senior, he played in just two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury, but coaches still voted him to honorable mention all-conference team.
Before joining the Utes, McKane excelled at Mesa H.S. in Arizona, earning Blue Chip All-American honors and was a member of the National Honor Society.
A memorial fund has been established through Wells Fargo Bank to help his family called the Stephen R. McKane Memorial fund, with account number 234790454.
