Kenny Pickett takes the reins of Steelers while carrying the hopes of a city
On a brisk but sunny morning, all is quiet on Ward Street. The Cathedral of Learning juts into a blue sky without a cloud in sight, one of tallest buildings in Pittsburgh and the highest point outside of Downtown. It’s about a mile away, but it feels like you can reach out and touch it from this vantage point, in the deep south of South Oakland where the yards are unkempt and the homes are not very nice.
This is where Kenny Pickett lived when he captured a campus and a fan base. Now he’ll try to capture a city and a Steeler Nation that stretches around the globe.
“Certain kids, certain players have that ‘it’ factor,” said Jim Cantafio, Pickett’s first quarterbacks coach when he was in middle school. “I cross my fingers and hope to God he’s got that ‘it’ factor and he’s going to be with the Steelers for so many years to come and have a ton of success.”
On Sunday, when Pickett makes his first NFL start, he’ll begin writing a story that’s already many chapters in the making.
August 8, 2022
After 58 yrs, I’m finally taking the Fall off.
The playing & coaching days are over. I loved every minute. I will miss the Friday night rush, but not the grind.
Best of luck to the coaches & players who will be kicking off a new season today.
Time to enjoy life.
NEW PODCAST, BRENEMAN SHOWS UP
MID-PENN QUARTERBACKS TO KEEP AN
PENN LIVE- Brian Linder
Stone Saunders and Alex Erby dominate the headlines and with good reason.
Saunders, Bishop McDevitt’s standout 2025 quarterback, is one of the best in the country for his class, and Erby, Steel-High’s 2024 standout, can say the same about his class. And that is why college scouts are making sure to stop in at Steelton and over at 1 Crusader Way when they trek through central Pa.

Jim Cantafio is Far From Done with Football
WITH COACHING THOUGH, HE'S HAD ENOUGH.
Jim Cantafio still loves football. Loves it too much possibly. As for the stress of Friday nights and the workload of preparing for them, he's had enough.
Coatesville’s Ortega Goes Out One of Most Successful PA QBs of All Time
This is a great place to add a tagline.
It is going to feel weird next season, watching a quarterback not named Ricky Ortega take snaps for Coatesville.
It’s going to be even more surreal for Coatesville coach Matt Ortega.
“It didn’t really hit me until (Saturday) morning,” Said Matt, Ricky’s father. “When you look back at it, he’s been on the sidelines with me every single game that I was at Coatesville and even my last year at York.”
The Ortega family arrived to Coatesville in 2009, and when little Ricky grew into a freshman starter in 2016, the program began to rise to the highest heights.
