Bensalem-native Steve Markle is a 2010 gradu­ate of Arch­bish­op Ry­an, a former All-Cath­ol­ic base­ball play­er, a senior at West Chester Uni­versity study­ing criminal justice…oh, and a nationally ranked trick-shot pool player .

This 22-year-old has traveled the world for years sharing his talent, which earned him a spot as the #6 trick-shot pool player in the country. Steve has performed in a $22 mil­lion mountain­top man­sion fol­low­ing the Sund­ance Film Fest­iv­al, in China where he has built a strong fanbase, before the bright lights of Las Vegas, and in Mississippi for ESPN as a mem­ber of Team USA in the World Cup of Trick Shots tour­na­ment.

When he's not performing live, Markle is busy capturing his talent on camera for his popular You­Tube channel, which has gathered mil­lions of views. One of his most notable tricks-to-date has been con­ver­ting a shot with his 90-pound Lab­rador sit­ting in the middle of the table. Check out this trick and more on the Steve Markle Pool YouTube channel here.

It all started around the age of 12 when Steve's father took him to the old Ir­ish Rover bar in Penndel, where a patron showed him the dia­mond sys­tem on the table to help aim and angle the shots. Markle even­tu­ally coaxed his par­ents in­to buy­ing him his own table.

Years of hard work ultimately led Steve to climb the ranks and ultimately achieve his dream of playing for the U.S. Team. Despite his exciting world travels, a special invitation stood out to Steve when in 2012, his alma ma­ter at Arch­bish­op Ry­an invited him back to perform for a packed school as­sembly in front of al­most 2,500 stu­dents.
