PITTSBURGH (GSM) — Native of Pittsburgh, Penn Hills High School standout, University of Pittsburgh product and National Football League All-pro, Aaron Donald has been nothing short of spectacular throughout his gridiron career.

The following clip is taken from an interview — with Golden Sky Media’s Brian Cook — of a documentary on legendary trainer DeWayne Brown (Release date: TBD) and Aaron Donald who has benefitted from Brown’s rigorous training regimen. 

However, Donald tells Cook how he feels about his return to his hometown on November 10 when the Rams will face the Pittsburgh Steelers, “This is my first time playing at Heinz Field since being a Pitt Panther,” Donald says, “I definitely have that marked on the calendar.”

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman David DeCastro will be lined up across from Donald and says it will take the whole team to stop him. “He moves around quite a bit. Everyone knows about Aaron Donald. I don’t need to speak on his resume. DeCastro said, “He’s a tremendous athlete. Smart player.”

Donald continues to train during the off season in Pittsburgh at the Aaron Donald Football Performance Center where he donated $1-million to renovate the facility. The back-to-back NFL Defensive Player of the Year continues to make significant pathways in professional football.

PITTSBURGH (GSM) — The Steelers announced Head Coach Mike Tomlin will stay around a while. At least for one more year.

Since 2007, Tomlin has been in his position. Prior to coming to the Steelers, he was a defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings and defensive backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy.

“Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we pursue our goal of winning another championship.” – Steelers owner Art Rooney II

Tomlin’s record as head coach is 131–71–1 (.648) including the post-season with a 1-1 Super Bowl record. The Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII against the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 and were defeated by the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV 31-25.

Steelers Photo of the Season

 

OAKLAND, CA (GSM) – In a, “not-so-happy” new year, the Pittsburgh Steelers ended the 2018 season with a 9-6 record. Although they had more wins than losses , Pittsburgh missed the playoffs when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns and secured the 6th seed in the AFC.

This year’s “Photo of the Season” is JuJu Smith-Shuster’s tiptoe touchdown in Oakland against the Raiders on December 9th, 2019. In a losing effort against one of the Steelers’ long standing rivals, the Raiders won the game 24-21 over the “Black N’ Gold.”
