Steve Mullahoo is easily recognized on the pitch by both his height and his luscious locks. Steve first met the quidditch team when he was dragged to a quidditch party his first semester at Tufts because he was over 6'2''. At the time, the Tufflepuffs were in desperate need of a tall keeper, and Steve fit the bill perfectly. He had a decent time at the party and decided to attend practice the following week and try out as a keeper. There, he realized he didn't suck and the rest is history. Steve's favorite part of playing quidditch is playing consistently with his line - Max, Ben & Hannah - since he knows that they execute plays well together. He says that he has a high level of trust in these chasers and enjoys laughing with them about an insane catch or goal while running back to the hoops.
Steve has inspired both the noun and the verb "Mullahoo". For instance, you may hear the Tufflepuffs using the verb "Mullahoo" to describe Steve's windmill arm as he drives past the opposing team. On the other hand, a " Mullahoo" is often used by the team to describe a classic yard-sale, where Steve or another player will fall without provocation and, in the process, lose their broom and the ball.
Verb: "Steve just Mullahoo'd that chaser at mid-pitch!"
Noun:"Damn, he just tripped over his own feet and pulled a Mullahoo"
Steve's two primary extracurricular activities are quidditch and Magic. While he had no prior quidditch experience, Steve came to Tufts already playing Magic semi-seriously and wanted to find a club where he could continue his interest in the game. Since the club that had previously hosted Magic games was disbanded due to accounting issues, Steve took it upon himself to get a group of students together to play. It started off as a small group of friends getting together occasionally, but kept snowballing to the point where Steve had to apply to make the group a student organization. This allowed the Magic team to receive funding to travel to bigger and bigger tournaments. This team is Steve's baby at Tufts, and he's proud that he created it from nothing. Over the past three years, Steve has placed in some big-name tournaments and is currently ranked 40th so far this season in Massachusetts. This coming March Break, Steve and his team are traveling to Montreal to compete in an international competition, where he hopes to win it all.
At World Cup, Steve is excited to play with the Tufflepuffs since he believes that they're currently the best team he's played with over the past three years. With them, he hopes to outshine past World Cup performances.
