The Pittsburgh Steelers president and general manager and their only living former coach were among those mourning Monday after the death of legendary NFL coach Don Shula.

Steelers president Art Rooney II said Shula was on his “Mount Rushmore of NFL head coaches.” Rooney II also cited Shula’s recommendation to Rooney’s grandfather, team founder Art Rooney, in hiring eventual four-time Super Bowl winning coach Chuck Noll, a former Shula assistant.

“Shula’s coaching career impacted so many people on and off the field,” Rooney II said in a statement released by the team.

“I know both (Rooney Sr. and Noll) had a great respect for Coach Shula and all of the outstanding contributions he made to the NFL. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Shula family as he will be missed by the entire NFL community.”

  • When it comes to Alex Highsmith, you can describe him as a worker.

Wrecking ball.

They are words that might not be the most complimentary for the vast percentage of the population, but for a college linebacker, they are words which are welcomed.

And for Alex Highsmith, hearing the way he plays described like that is something he doesn’t mind at all.

“I like those words on the field,” said Highsmith. “My motor and effort are relentless in every aspect of the game. I can’t wait to be a wrecking ball for the Steelers.

“I feel like I have a lot of room for growth. I am not close to reaching my potential. I can’t wait to learn from T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree and work with the guys in the room. I can’t wait to just be a sponge and learn everything I can and be the best player I can.”
