The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to play their Super Wild Card Weekend matchup on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Before the game begins, some Steelers fans may recognize the national anthem performer.

Benjamin “Coach” Wade, a three-time contestant on the CBS show ‘Survivor,’ announced on his social media account that he will be performing the national anthem for Sunday’s game with his trumpet.

“Proud to announce that this Sunday I’ll be playing the national anthem. At the @BuffaloBills Playoff game on the trumpet,” Wade tweeted. “God has richly blessed me in life! All praise goes to Him!”

Wade appeared on ‘Survivor’ in 2008, 2010 and again in 2012, where he finished as the runner-up of the competition’s 23rd season to Sophie Clarke.

Perhaps “Coach” can bring some good vibes before the game that will lead to a Steelers victory.

The Steelers and Bills are set to kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday inside Highmark Stadium.
