Stephen Robert Juzwik (June 18, 1918 – June 1964) was an American football running back in the National Football League (NFL) for the Washington Redskins. He also played in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) for the Buffalo Bisons/Bills and the Chicago Rockets. He played college football at the University of Notre Dame and was drafted in the 21st round of the 1942 NFL Draft.

After leaving football, Steve became the gym coach at Quigley Preparatory Seminary North in Chicago where he taught until his untimely death in 1964. Known by the seminarians as just "The Coach," Juzwik was beloved by all with whom he came in contact. He made sure that Chicago's future priests would know how to wrestle, swim, run track, and above all -- play basketball and football.
