Coach Steve played soccer at West Allegheny High School, where he was a starter for the varsity team all four years. During his junior year, he was offered a scholarship to St. Vincent’s University in Latrobe, but after graduating high school he decided to turn down the scholarship and enlist in the Army. While deployed to Germany, Oberle played in a pub league with the German locals for the three years where he gained experience and learned different styles of play while learning the German philosophy and culture.
He returned from the Army, pursued his Act 120 certification, and began his career as a police officer. Once his boys were old enough to play soccer, he began coaching for CVSA youth soccer and helped coach both of his boys and continues to coach his youngest son. He has coached ages U6 through U12 for nine years and is currently serving on the CVSA board. Oberle obtained his national E license, with a desire to obtain higher certifications.
Oberle is currently employed by Collier Township Police Department. Oberle was selected by the superintendent and school board of Chartiers Valley School district to become the School Resource Officer for the Primary School. Oberle obtained his advanced SRO certificate from NASRO. While being assigned to the Primary School, Oberle has instructed, counseled, and mentored many of the students in grades K-2.
Oberle resides in Collier Township with his wife, Heather and two sons.
