Too cool! Thank you for joining and sharing your personal experience.

although I already knew the answer, I just asked Hokie (via twitter) "you could have demanded a trade or your release to be a starter for half the teams in the NFL, yet you never did. Why not?"

his response-

hokiebro76Chris Hoke

@Steelers_Fever I couldn't see myself going anywhere else. Also me, my wife and kids were heavily involved in the community.

a true class act. a true steeler. a true fan favorite.

sometimes its more than just stats or "what have you done for me lately".

atleast it is to THIS steelersfan!
