The 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers rookies did a good deed in the Pittsburgh community this offseason.

In an effort to highlight some of the good the Pittsburgh Steelers do in the community, the 2019 rookies went to a very well-known players’ youth home to help work with some students in need.

So often in our culture today the attention given to professional athletes off their field of play is almost strictly negative. But there is still plenty of good happening, and it is up to sites like this one to highlight those actions.

Recently, the Steelers’ rookies went to the Mel Blount Youth Home to work with the young adults, and they did more than just talk the kids. They put them through a workout.

Players like Benny Snell Jr., Derwin Gray and other newcomers to the black-and-gold put these athletes through the ringer. Warm ups, sprints and plenty of team-building and competition to not only help them bond as a draft class, but introduce them to the Steelers fan base.
