College career

Stecker began his college career at Wisconsin in 1995. He spent two years with the University of Wisconsin, recording three 100-yard games, a 100-yard kick return for a touchdown, and a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown. In 1997, he transferred to Western Illinois after the emergence of future Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne pushed Stecker from his starting role with the Badgers. During the 1997 season, Stecker recorded 2,293 rushing yards en route to winning the Gateway Football Conference player of the year award. Stecker finished his career at Western Illinois as the school's all-time leading rusher, with 3,799 yards in just two seasons. This record was broken by Travis Glasford in 2005, and is now held by Herb Donaldson, as of 2008.

Chicago Bears

Stecker spent the 1999 training camp with the Chicago Bears; however, he did not make the active roster.

Scottish Claymores

Before the 2000 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers allocated Stecker to the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe. Stecker led the league in total scrimmage yards through the first two weeks in the season. He wound up garnering Offensive MVP honors.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Early in his career in Tampa Bay, Stecker credits Fred McAfee for bolstering his confidence. During the 2000 season, Stecker began returning kickoffs for the Bucs. During his four years with the team, he became a core special teams player, along with sporadic duty as a pass-catching back. He also won Super Bowl XXXVII with the team before leaving after 2003.

New Orleans Saints

Signing with the New Orleans Saints before 2004, Stecker became a return man and scat back. Competing with established backs such as Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister led to sparse playing time. He was placed on injured reserve during the 2008 season and did not return to the team the following year.

Atlanta Falcons

Stecker was signed by the Atlanta Falcons in the middle the 2009 season, where he played mostly on special teams. He carried the ball five times and caught it five times as well. The Packers also showed interest in Stecker in 2009.


In April 2010, Stecker retired. He was tried out by the Green Bay Packers later that year but did not garner a contract offer.

Personal life

Stecker's wife Kara is the daughter of Diane Hendricks and the late Ken Hendricks, founder of ABC Supply. They have two children, daughter, Skylar Stecker, and son, Dorsett. Skylar is a singer: by age 12 she had sung the national anthem at Wisconsin Badgers, New Orleans Saints, UCLA, and Green Bay Packers games.
