Steve Szykula was one of Windsor Lock’s High School’s top student athletes.
Steve lettered in soccer, baseball, and basketball during his sophomore, junior and senior years and made the academic honor roll most of those years as well.
During his first 5 games as a sophomore on the varsity basketball team, he averaged 28 points per game.
Many believe Szykula to be one of the best pure shooters to ever play at Windsor Locks High School.
After high school, Steve received a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1974.
In 1977, he received a PhD. in Psychology from the University of Tennessee.
Steve is a psychologist and the founder and C.E.O. of Comprehensive Psychological Services in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Steve is considered a very successful psychologist, and he operates the largest private mental health clinic in Utah.
Defying age-related injuries, Steve still has game. He plays ball 3 times a week at the highest level of competition with several players from the Utah Jazz’ current roster and numerous European pro-players who return to Utah in the off season.
He returns to Connecticut about twice a year to visit his mother, Helen Szykula, other family members, and friends.
Steve has two adult children, Laura and Sam. Laura is following her dad’s footsteps in applied social sciences with a Behavioral Science and Health degree (with a gerontology certificate) and Sam graduated with a degree in Sports, Leisure, and Recreation in 2009. Now that’s a college major!
Steve’s greatest high school memories are of the times his friends and teammates would hang out and joke about Coach Sullivan’s temper and motivational technique!
