🏈 Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and current San Francisco 49er Josh Dobbs visited the NASA’s Glenn Research Center for the Total Eclipse Festival in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dobbs, who’s also known as “The Passtronaut,” has managed to further his football career while continuing his pursuit of rocket science. Dobbs graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in aerospace engineering and a 4.0 GPA. He has done an externship with NASA twice.

🏈 Former Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley watched the solar eclipse from the Roberto Clemente Bridge in Pittsburgh.

🏈 In a CBS Sports mock draft, former NFL defensive end Leger Douzable has the Steelers selecting Missouri cornerback Ennis Rakestraw Jr. at 20th overall.

“Rakestraw ran slower than expected at the combine — 4.51 — and his film in 2023 was so consistent. This may be a tick early for him, but it clearly fills a need in Pittsburgh,” Chris Trapasso wrote about Douzable’s selection.

🏈 New Steelers punter Cameron Johnston talked about growing up playing Australian football in an interview with Ron Lippock of Steelers Takeaways.

You spend so many years on the mechanical part of punting when you play Australian football. I played since I was four years old – so punting that long instead of throwing the ball builds those mechanics – it makes it easier,” Johnston said.

🏈 Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward was impressed with the main event at WrestleMania XL.

🎥 Steel City Star posted a clip of Bill Cowher blocking a punt when he played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1984.
