Ethan Hemer confirms he's in Steelers Country

Mark Cunningham

The undrafted rookie had a large sign in his yard a day before he left Wisconsin for Steelers rookie minicamp.

Not in an effort to ensure Steelers UDFA Ethan Hemer is overcooked by the time training camp rolls around, this Tweet (courtesy of WSAW weekend sports anchor Kaitlin Sharkey) shows the support Hemer is getting.

We wrote yesterday about Wesley Johnson's familial connections, as well as Josh Mauro showing a bit of a link to the Steelers. Whether Hemer actually has any sort of connection to the Steelers through family and fan bonds, we don't know, but certainly he has enough of it for people to find a large sign to plant in his yard a day before he left Wisconsin for Pittsburgh.

The Steelers kick off their rookie minicamp and orientation today, and it runs through Friday. The Steelers will continue with Phase Two of the offseason program - on-field individual instruction - through May 26. The team's full minicamp is scheduled for June 17.
