Five Players Steeler Fans Need To Watch
  • Steven Sylvester: Inside Linebacker. Sylvester, third year out of Utah, will be competing with Larry Foote for the hole left by James Farrior.
  • Barron Batch: Running Back.  Look for Batch to fill in on third down situations. The good news is the Steelers are deep in backs with Redman, Moore, Dwyer and rookie Chris Rainey. Cuts are immenent.
  • Steve McClenden: Nose Tackle. Look to McClenden going head-to-head against Ta'amu.
  • Jerricho Cotchery: Wide Receiver. Will fill void left by Hines while competing with Sanders for 3 spot.
  • Keenan Lewis: Conerback. Watch Lewis competing with second year corners Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown for opening left by Gay. Observers believe Lewis will fill that spot.

Alliance College: Steelers Training Camp

I happen to be an alumni of Alliance College. The college was an independent, liberal arts college located in Cambridge Springs, PA. It was founded in 1912 by the Polish National Alliance. The college encouraged the study of the Polish and Eastern European languages and culture. Alliance College closed in 1988.

In addition to its outstanding legacy, Alliance College also served as training camp for the Steelers from 1947 to 1951.
