A Pitt great showing love to a West Virginia great? Well, that’s what happens when the Pitt all-time great and the former Mountaineer now share an NFL franchise.
As Steelers rookie quarterback, who has been in the midst of some of his best work in his brief time in the league recently, handed some of his game-worn gloves to a fan as he was leaving the field after Pittsburgh’s 19-16 win over the Falcons on Sunday. It wasn’t just any fan though. This fan is the nephew of former Steelers safety Mike Logan.
Pickett may not have even realized this, but Logan was sitting with his family at the game and can be seen cheering as Pickett offered his gloves.
Kenny two gloves just made this lucky fan's day 🖤💛@kennypickett10 | @steelers pic.twitter.com/Bq944HgA1o
