This rookie has impressed coaches and players alike with his display of talent. It's not just the physical ability of the 6' 1", 237 lb rookie that makes him special. His football IQ is off the charts...."He's going to be fun to watch," Roethlisberger said on WDVE 102.5 in Pittsburgh, "and the thing about him that is most underrated that people don't talk about is he's very smart on the field.... I think he's going to be a guy that's going to be calling the defense pretty soon."
LB coack Keith Butler has nothing but high praise for him... "He understands concepts and picks things up a little bit easier than most rookies."
We here at Stiller Gang World have been watching Shazier from the moment we saw him walk across the stage at Radio City Music Hall to be drafted by The Pittsburgh Steelers. We were there that day in the upper balcony, May 8th, 2014, shouting in support as he was selected. We knew he would be special because he joined the team the same exact day that someone very special to us joined the rest of the Big Yinzers in Heaven (who cheer from the clouds every game).... Yinz had better believe that we can't wait to see what he does for the team! Bang Bang!
