Watch: Steelers QB Kenny Pickett on Growing Up Eagles, Phillies Fan
PITTSBURGH — Kenny Pickett grew up in Ocean Township, N.J., which is about a 50-minute drive from the New Jersey Meadowlands where the New York Jets and Giants play and over an hour and a half from South Philadelphia.
It’s an area where fanbases mix and merge and it’s not uncommon to find fans of a half-dozen teams sharing a bar on a Sunday afternoon.
But it’s clear from the start that Kenny Pickett was a Philly sports fan. He grew up idolizing Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, and for the first time, will be playing at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field with the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.
