Why Ziggy Hood is Pledge Class President


Ziggy Hood's comments after the game, as quoted in the Post-Gazette this morning speak volumes about him, about the Steeler team, about the Steeler organization, and about Steeler Nation.

Ziggy hasn't been the rookie getting all the headlines - that would be Mike Wallace, of course. But our first round draft choice has done everything that has been asked of him - and more. Denver was the first time he saw extended action in a regular season game, and he was a disuptive force in the Denver backfield. But rather than toot his own horn after his nationally televised debut, he showed Steeler class, Steeler humility and Steeler team spirit. The quote - in Gene Collier's column in the P-G literally stopped me in my tracks.

 

Here's the quote:

"I wake up every morning and thank God I play with people like this. It's not only the kind of players they are, but the kind of people. To be able to play on a defense with a tradition like this is just unbelievable. It's a blessing."

 

Wow. That's enough to make Coach Dad teary-eyed.

 

Thank you, Pledge Hood.  The future of Black and Gold House is strong. Somebody say amen!
