Best known for his lead blocking for Hall of Fame running back, Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, former Pittsburgh Steelers fullback, Tim Lester has sadly passed away at the age of 52.

Nicknamed the “Bus Driver,” Lester spent four seasons in Pittsburgh (1995-1998) and was originally drafted in 1992 by the Los Angeles Rams after attending Eastern Kentucky. Lester ended his pro career with the Dallas Cowboys in 1999 finishing with 126 yards rushing, two rushing touchdowns, 47 receptions, 331 receiving yards, and eight receiving touchdowns. Lester was also a member of the Super Bowl XXX Steelers team.

Our condolences go out to the Lester family.

Managing Editor of, I’m a Steelers fan first, and a human being second. I BLEED black and gold! I love everything Steeler Nation and I’ve been with this staff since February 2018. I now reside in sunny San Diego, CA, but that doesn’t stop me from attending every game at Heinz Field, and a few away games as well if possible. I graduated from Old Dominion University in 2010, and if I’m not watching a Steelers game, you can catch me at the beach, stuffing my face with Golden Oreos, or in front of anything Marvel.
