The Pittsburgh Steelers spent a lot of NFL Draft capital when they traded up 10 spots in the 2019 Draft to select Michigan linebacker Devin Bush. It was a bold move for a very conservative organization, but the team usually has a good read on prospects they are willing to trade up for in the first round.
With the move, it spoke of an enormous amount of hope and belief in Bush being the long term answer at ILB, and the replacement for injured Ryan Shazier. When a player has this type of faith coming from the organization, it is a safe bet you can start laying roots down in the 412 area code expecting to be there at least 5 seasons, probably more.
Bush finally got around to doing some interior decorating, and his man cave which was just completed by Pittsburgh artist Cody Sabol is amazing.
Just check out the video from Sabol himsef:
DEVIN BUSH QUARANTINE MURAL— Cody Sabol (@Cody_Sabol) March 26, 2020
Hope everyone is okay wherever you are and staying safe! I wanted to share this project my brother and I have been working on for the past couple days. It’s some of my favorite work I’ve ever done. @steelers pic.twitter.com/Euy9AF2ItJ
We here at BTSC were fortunate enough to interview Sabol and talk about him and his current influence on the current Pittsburgh sports scene. You can read the interview HERE, but Sabol has done tremendous work for players like JuJu Smith-Schuster, Joe Haden, Dionate Johnson and James Conner. He has also done work for members of the Pittsburgh Penguins, especially the captain Sidney Crosby.
Bush has a big season coming up in Year 2 of his NFL career. The Steelers cut Mark Barron, who many believed him to be an insurance policy for Bush as a rookie, meaning the team doesn’t currently have a safety net if Bush takes a step backwards in his sophomore season.
Either way, Bush’s ‘Man Cave’ certainly has some serious swag to it...
