He has direct family ties to players on the championship teams of a century ago. This has inspired him to spend countless hours of studying microfilm of the Bethlehem Globe Newspaper at the Bethlehem Public Library . Through this research he has compiled the most comprehensive history of the Bethlehem Steel Soccer Club. My son and I captured some of the lecture with Pastor Morrison's permission and have posted it here:
