Steelers’ Thomas Tull Stepped up for Switzer Family

It’s a well known fact across the NFL and in Pittsburgh that the Steelers are a first class organization. That fact was again reaffirmed by the help they gave former receiver Ryan Switzer and his family recently.

Switzer shared on social media a chain of events with his infant son that resulted in his son being admitted to the hospital. His son had internal bleeding, but doctors were stumped on what was causing the issue. After a second trip to the hospital led to no answers, the Switzer’s decided to take their case to Boston.



With a need to get there quickly, Steelers minority owner Thomas Tull stepped in. Tull set the Switzer’s up on his private jet and flew them to Boston.

While in Boston, the Switzer family was given good news after a series of tests. The doctors believed they had figured out the issue. After a surgical procedure they believe they fixed the little guy up.

Switzer sent out a heartfelt message on IG.


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 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!

    This attitude and conduct goes directly back to the Steelers founder Art Rooney. He was a man of deep religious conviction who cared deeply for his team. This passed on to Dan and now abides with the present Rooney of the Steelers. This has spread through the team and support staff. I am proud to be a Steelers fan
