Steelers Antonio Brown Gives Back to Alma Mater Central Michigan Steelers receiver Antonio Brown gives back to his Alma Mater in a generous way. Published 6 months ago on January 18, 2019 By Donnie Druin 4shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailWhile negativity has mostly surrounded the headlines around Antonio Brown recently, the former sixth round pick out of Central Michigan decided to give back to the school that helped him become the player he is today. It was announced on Friday that the former Chippewa has donated six Dragon Seat heated benches for the players to use on the sidelines. Dragon Seats remains the only manufacturer of heated football benches used by the National Football League. “These benches really help me stay loose and ready to perform no matter the conditions and I am excited to see how they help current and future Chippewas succeed” said Brown via cmuchippewas.com. “CMU will always be a special place for me and I am happy to be able to give back.” During his three years at Central Michigan, Brown totaled 305 receptions for 3,199 yards and 22 touchdowns. Brown also played alongside All-Pro defensive player JJ Watt at CMU, before Watt ultimately transferred after 14 games to Wisconsin.

The benches are valued at $105,000, and will be branded in maroon/gold to adopt CMU school colors. 4shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Antonio BrownCentral MichiganfeaturedNFL Up Next Reports: Safety Morgan Burnett Wants Out of Contract Don't Miss Antonio Brown’s Downfall Through Social Media Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Players Need to Fight for 16 Game Season Mic Drop: AFC North Preview Exclusive with former Steelers TE, XFL Head Coach Jonathan Hayes Madden NFL ‘20 Reveals Steelers Player Ratings Steelers Dermontti Dawson, Cameron Heyward went Head-to-Head on Celebrity Family Feud Steelers Help Unveil Steel Curtain Roller Coaster at Kennywood Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
