At 30, sexy NFL running back Steven J. knows that he’s a great catch, and he’s looking for a strong, Godly woman who can treat him as good as he plans to treat her.

“It’s time for me to mature in areas like dating, and I’m ready,” the September Single Man of the Month tells us.

He loves to travel, he’s super into photography and he appreciates a woman he can pray and grow with every day. Want to know more about this humble hunk?
