The Steelers, for the first time ever, are offering a football fantasy camp for men. I wish I would have found out about this sooner. I wonder why the Tribune-Review only publisized this a week before the camp was supposed to start? Anyway, I'll have to keep an eye out for this camp next year!
The Steelers will give their male fans an opportunity to taste the life of a professional football player when they hold their first fantasy camp for men June 6-8 at St. Vincent College, near Latrobe.
Participants will receive on-field and classroom instruction from Steelers assistant coaches Mike Mularkey, Tim Lewis, Tom Clements and Kenny Jackson. and former players Jon Kolb, Louis Lipps, Edmund Nelson, Andy Russell and Mike Wagner.
The package includes two nights' lodging and five meals, including a Saturday night banquet emceed by former Steelers offensive linemen Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley, who are current members of the team's radio broadcast crew. The evening also will feature Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris and WDVE's Jim Krenn.
Registration must be made in advance and costs $349 per person. Further information can be found on Steelers.com or by telephoning 412-697-7713.
