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.
