Steelers to again conduct camp drills at high schools
The Steelers will continue their tradition of conducting two training camp practices at local high school football fields.
The Steelers will practice at Latrobe High School on July 31 and at Greensburg's Offutt Field on Aug. 14. Both practices will begin at 7:05 p.m., preceded by 15-minute autograph sessions beginning at 6:45 p.m.
"These practices enable us to branch out into the community and allow fans who may not get an opportunity to visit training camp a chance to see us in person," Steelers coach Bill Cowher said. "It also is good for our team's preparation by giving us a break from the regular two-a-day camp."
Admission for the Latrobe practice is $3 for adults, $1 for children 17 years old and under and senior citizens over 65. Children under 12 will be admitted free if accompanied by a parent. Proceeds benefit the Greater Latrobe School District athletic program.
At Greensburg, admission is $3 for adults and free for children under 18 and senior citizens. Proceeds benefit the Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department and the Greensburg Salem athletic department.
Tickets for each event will be sold at the gates.
The Steelers report to training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe on July 24.
