It is hard for rookies to imagine the atmosphere at Heinz Field before actually playing a game.
Even when they suit up for the first time, it exceeds all expectations.
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookie class is getting a taste of the next closest thing Monday night.
Running back Najee Harris, tight end Pat Freiermuth, center Kendrick Green and offensive tackle Dan Moore Jr. are in the building for tonight Game 5 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders at PPG Paints Arena.
Harris shared an Instagram story of himself waving a rally towel along with Penguins fans prior to puck drop. Steelers fans will be waving their terrible towels for Harris and his teammates this fall.
Green shared a similar Instagram story of his own with the caption “Playoff Penguins” and another with Harris flexing in the background.
Harris and Green even made it on the Jumbotron, and the fans erupted as expected.
