Steve "the" Hanes is probably the most elegant jammer on the circuit, and has a great field presence that shows the spectators how much he loves playing. Hanes combines fantastic gymnastic tumbling (see photos on the left) with a technical flair that is pure joy to watch.
Along with longtime partner Dan Yarnell, Steve won an FPA Worlds Open Pairs title in Santa Cruz in 1999. Rumor had it that Hanes and Yarnell were one person as the synergy between the two was so strong.
This Texan exudes the spirit of the game. Often he is the first to congratulate a winner, even when said victory was directly at his expense. He will jam all day and be all over the turf, which is remarkable given his back surgery not long ago.
