One of five Riverhounds SC players with five or more goals in this shortened season, the high-scoring, hardworking Steevan Dos Santos is an undisputed leader on the top team in the USL Championship’s Eastern Conference.

In this 1-v-1 interview, Dos Santos discusses his origins as a footballer, his taste for competition and physical contact, handling the abbreviated COVID-19 season, and why he’s enjoyed playing for coach Bob Lilley on two separate teams.

Oh, and what about that nickname? Thanks to ‘Duba’ for opening up about his career, past and present, on Pittsburgh Sports Live!
