Roosevelt Girls Basketball

Assistant Coach: Karlie Stein

Here's Karlie in her own words:

I'm excited to be joining the Rider Family as an assistant basketball coach! I graduated from King's High School in 2012 and went on to play basketball and run track in Santa Barbara at Westmont College. While at Westmont I majored in Sociology and Religious Studies and went to nationals in basketball and track every year- notably winning the NAIA national basketball championship in 2013.

I have been working at Shoreline Sports Foundation for the last 4 years and am currently the executive director. I'm deeply passionate about working with youth and SSF focuses on building community through sports and hands-on leadership opportunities for students to serve their communities.

I also have two years of JV and Varsity basketball coaching experience at my alma mater, King's High School. I've been told you hear me before you see me as a coach (and in general) therefore I will be in a heated competition with Taylor for most energetic coach on the bench :)

I just got married this past summer to Jonathon Stein who is a teacher at Northshore Christian Academy in Everett. Ask us about how we met sometime, his dad was my dad's high school basketball coach.

If I'm not in a gym, you will likely find me traveling somewhere fun, eating good food with friends and family, or crocheting while watching TV with my husband. Go Riders!

Welcome Karlie!

Welcome Joe!

We are thrilled to have coach Taylor and coach Emma as part of the Rider Family. Here's the introduction from Athletic Director Ryan Sherlock:

Roosevelt girls basketball family I want to introduce to you to your new head coach Taylor Mulberg and his assistant coach Emma Seymour. We are so fortunate to have two fabulous coaches that are extremely excited to continue the rich tradition of girls basketball at Roosevelt high school. Please feel free to reach out to both of them and please get excited for the upcoming season.

Head Coach: Taylor Mulberg:

A Seattle native, Taylor grew up playing with Y.E.S. select basketball and Miles Ahead Select out of St. Joseph's school. In high school, he honed his basketball skill and knowledge of the game at O'Dea where he was part of the 2007 State Championship team under Greg Kalina and Phil Lumpkin. After high school, he played at North Seattle Community College earning a scholarship to play Division II at Fischer College in Boston. Due to family matters, Taylor decided to stay close to home and finish his degree at the University of Washington.

Taylor has been coaching youth basketball from over 12 years and has been a head coach with the Ballard Select Basketball Program for over 6 years. Not only does Taylor focus on the fundamentals of basketball, he also teaches his players to learn to how to handle adversity, treat their teammates with respect, and discover satisfaction of hard work. Taylor's philosophy is "person before player, learning before winning, and giving the tools for life." As the next head coach of Roosevelt high school, his main goal is to bring a positive and energetic enthusiasm to the girls and have them enjoy their basketball journey together. He wants the girls to leave Roosevelt becoming well-rounded, confident in themselves, and better people than when they first entered the basketball program.

Taylor and his wife Carly reside in Lynnwood, WA where he spends most of his days studying hoops and taking care of their one year old, Jacob.

Assistant Coach: Emma Seymour:

Emma graduated from Roosevelt in 2015 and went on to play basketball at Smith College while majoring in the Study of Women and Gender, and minoring in Exercise and Sports Studies. She is passionate about women’s participation in sports, and has worked to bring awareness to the inequalities that female athletes face both in college and professionally. Her articles have been published in Ms. Magazine, Forbes Magazine, and The Hampshire Gazette. You can read one of her articles here.
