Steelers Heading Back to Latrobe

Last season the Pittsburgh Steelers were not allowed to travel for training camp. So that meant they weren’t able to host training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Instead they were forced to hold camp at Heinz Field.

That won’t be the case this season. The team will be allowed to travel this season for training camp according to a memo sent to NFL teams on Friday.

 

 

Steelers President Art Rooney II had acknowledged earlier this year that his hope would be for the team to be able to get back to St. Vincent.

“As we sit here today, our plan is to have training camp in Latrobe,” Rooney II said to Steelers.com in February. “We still have a ways to go to get there, but I think there’s a pretty good chance that’s going to be able to happen. We’re still hopeful we’re going to have some form of offseason program, and it’s probably not going to start on time but I think it’s important particularly for the young players that we get back to having an offseason program and then a full training camp and preseason games. I think we need to have that to help the young players continue to develop.”

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!
