Steelers Terrell Edmunds, John Banaszak Help Bethel Park Honor Fallen Veterans

Published

Current Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds and legendary Steelers lineman John Banaszak were the honorary captains for the 2021 Western Pennsylvania Gold Star game on Friday night, to honor those United States servicemembers who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The game, played between West Allegheny and Bethel Park on Friday night, is in its third year of honoring the families of fallen American soldiers, sailors and airmen. The home Black Hawks wore camouflage uniforms.

“They take it very seriously,” Banaszak said to Steelers.com. “It just gives me goosebumps thinking about how well these kids are and what they’re going to learn and take from this game. The issues of today are forgotten when you look out across the field and see these kids in camo.”

Edmunds said he was thinking about those being honored at the game and was thankful for their sacrifice.

“It just means a lot to be behind their families,” he said.

The Black Hawks won the game, 20-10.
