Stecker earned a Super Bowl ring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003.
In the 2005-06 academic year, AHS won the Division 2 state football title; both the boys' and girls' basketball teams advanced to the state tournament, with the girls winning the title in dramatic fashion; and the girls' softball team won its fourth Division 1 state championship.
