“As a former Steeler, there is a lot of pressure at training camp. Coach Chuck Noll was known for his intense camps – it was hard – and we often practiced twice a day. However, everyone from the maintenance staff and those who serve the meals (just everyone) are the most gracious and hospitable people. They treat me better than I deserve. Saint Vincent exudes faith, family and football; you see the love of Christ. It’s great seeing all the monks and my friends. I love coming here.”
