Matakevich Named Special Teams Captain

Matakevich Named Special Teams Captain

On Wednesday the Steelers announced the addition of Tyler Matakevich as special teams captain.

Robert Golden served as special teams captain last year, but was not named captain prior to the season. Coach Tomlin had said they were going with a week by week special teams captain, but obviously that changed today.

Last seasons captains walk out for the coin toss in Cleveland.

Matakevich blocked a punt against the Browns that was recovered for a touchdown, and prevented a completion on a fake punt pass by the Vikings in week 2.

He will join Ben Roethlisberger, and Cam Heyward as the other two captains.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
