Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. If that popular adage holds true, then Steve Engebretsen's 38 years at Durham Academy — a span marked by countless long hours and days, and shepherding the athletic careers of thousands of DA students and hundreds of coaches — truly represents a decades-long labor of love. Dedicating your life's work to athletics at an independent school also means handling your fair share of a little blood, a lot of sweat and (sometimes) tears. And while he'd never admit being DA's athletic director wasn't hard work, Steve will tell you that his job was easier as long as he kept one thing in mind.
