Local Kids Get Football Pointers From Big Ben At Camp

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – School is out for the summer, but some local kids spent the day learning all about football from one of the best in the business.

There was a lot of energy out on the field as 500 kids took part in the Ben Roethlisberger Football Camp.

Big Ben made the rounds to help divide the young athletes into teams.

“I’ve always had a spot in my heart for the kids and to see the joy on their face when they’re throwing a pass to get a completion and get a high five. It’s just awesome to me,” Roethlisberger said.

This is the fourth year for Roethlisberger’s came it has become a tradition for some kids.

“He asked me if me and my friend cheated to be on the same team, but we told him no and then he said he remembered me from last year,” Maddie Mulinaro said.

Veterans and rookies alike were thrilled to be able to hang out with one of their role models.

During drills, Roethlisberger moved around passing and catching.

The kids were also excited to meet Brett Keisel who showed up to toss the ball around.

“It’s hard because I have to keep them from getting too excited and not paying attention to their coach. They all want high fives and they all want me to throw them the ball, so once we get them going on their drills, it’s pretty fun,” Roethlisberger said.

One of the big highlights for the kids ranging in age from 7 to 14 was lining up and having the chance to catch a pass from Big Ben.

Tomlin Hosts Local Kids At Annual Youth Football Camp

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — More than 200 young people enjoyed Thursday’s great weather by spending it outdoors.

They took part in a youth football camp hosted by Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin at Brashear High School.

The kids, ages 7 to 14, learned all about football from some of the best in the business.

“We’re gonna have fun; we’re gonna play football; we are going to develop skills centered around this game,” Tomlin told the kids.

The young athletes were ready to take the field with some of the pros they look up to.

“I have six jerseys, a lot of Terrible Towels,” said Khaleece Phas, a camper. “I want to be on the Steelers football team when I get older.”

The kids, many involved with organizations like Urban Impact and the Boys & Girls Club were divided up in teams.

Each team had its own Steeler to teach some tricks of the trade. Sixteen rookies showed up and jumped in on the action.

Although the kids were focusing on the fundamentals of football, Coach Tomlin says camp is more than that.

“I want them to play hard; I want them to play fair and I want them to play to win and there is nothing wrong with that either,” he said. “Hopefully, they get that understanding that this could be a recipe for success in life, whatever it is that they do.”

The two-day camp is free to the kids. Coach Tomlin says he wanted it that way. He remembers going to football camps as a kid and his parents struggling to pay.

“It was a financial strain on my parents,” Tomlin added. “We had to make a commitment to do so, and I always said if I got in position to help young people that love football and provide a free camp that I would do that.”

Steelers’ Mundy & Batch Help Local Needy Families Ahead Of Thanksgiving

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s a bye week for the Pittsburgh Steelers; but for a couple members of the team, this Sunday meant a day of giving back to the community as they handed out turkeys and all the fixings to 100 families in need.

It was all part of the Dignity & Respect program at the Rankin Christian Center, it’s where Steelers safety Ryan Mundy grew up.

“I’m just giving back,” said Mundy. “This is the school district that I grew up in. It’s always good to get out and give back and interact in the community.”

Mundy brought a buddy along with him – another hometown kid who grew up to play for the Steelers – backup quarterback Charlie Batch.

“We’re just trying to do our small part to help out the families throughout the holiday season, and it’s really a small token of appreciation,” said Batch.

It’s part of an effort to provide 100 needy families with turkeys and all the trimmings. Holiday dinners they may have gone without.

“It just relieves a burden that a lot of people face and they don’t know how they are going to pull it all together and make a beautiful meal for their families,” said Ondrea Burton, of the Dignity & Respect Campaign.

Besides getting a Thanksgiving dinner, the needy families also got some Steelers autographs.

The Rankin Christian Center provides a variety of services to families in need.
