I finally made the trek to Training Camp this year, my fist trip ever, and I was lucky enough to have a friend who was able to score some wristbands to actually get down on the field during practice. It was a great experience!! The only drawback was I wasn't able to ask for any autographs and after the practice, the players went back to the dorms after they were done with practice. I guess it was due to the fact it was an evening practice? But I did see coach Hoak, he must have been there for the field dedication to Coach Noll! Louis Lipps and Tunch Ilkin were on the stage as well.

Sorry, I didn't get there to see all of the ceremony or hear who all was there. But I was told that the building and bleachers were all new? I was getting this information second hand, so if this is wrong, I am sorry.

It was really nice, Bill Hillgrove was doing the play by play over the P.A. system while the guys were practicing, and there were a ton of people there, cheering each play.

This picture only show a few of the people there. I realize my camera isn't the greatest, and I had trouble catching the players when they were facing me, but I thought I would share with the rest of the Steelers Nation that might not be able to make this trek.

Let me just say, Fanaca is a pure beast, and Starks is even bigger I think!! True Gladiators!!

I took about 70 pictures when I was there, i'm sure the Mods would be chapped if I put them all on here, these are probably too many as it is, but I hope they keep them on for a few days for the others to enjoy. Everyone did really good, Ben, Charlie and Brian look sharp. I was really impressed with Spaeth, he looked really good and made a couple of great catches. It will be exciting to watch him and Miller make some play this year with the new formations they've been talking about. I'm really excited for the season to start now.

It was worth burning a few hours of vacation time to go, we're already making plans for next year, if you get a chance to go, you should!

Hope everyone enjoys.

Did they name this guy yet?


Well that about it, the rest are fuzzy when i would flinch or get bumped, hope I didn't repeat any of them. I'll keep these on till the regular season, then I'll make a link to to a website where they can be viewed. Thanks for all of the compliments gang, happy to share!!

Great pics!! We were there that night.....you just missed where we were sitting up on the hill in one of the pics by just a few feet!! Dan Rooney walked right passed us twice that night.

BTW......the mascot hasn't been named yet. My husband watched him sign an autograph for a little boy ......he wrote "MASCOT". LOL!
