Fired up for black & gold fashion

Posted Sep 27, 2016

Steelers' players had fans and shoppers thinking about football and fashion.

Going to the mall can always be exciting for shopaholics, but on Tuesday night it was a mecca for football fans who enjoyed a Rock Steelers Style pep rally.

The rally is just a prelude to Rock Steelers Style, the team’s annual fashion show that will be held on Friday, Oct. 7 at Stage AE to benefit the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program and the Cancer Caring Center.

Football fans and shoppers enjoyed upbeat music spun by DJ Steve Maffei Jr. as well as the energetic beats of the Steeline Drumline.

But the highlight was an appearance by Steelers Sammie Coates, Rob Golden and Arthur Moats.

“It’s always good to get the fans hyped up for an event that is thrown by the Steelers and is for a great cause,” said Moats. “The fact that we get to do it and I get to be one of the people out there leading the charge is always good.”

The players did a Q & A conducted by former Steelers nose tackle Chris Hoke and then held a meet and greet with the crowd.

The event definitely set the stage for the excitement that will surround Rock Steelers Style, which this year has the theme of Celebrating the Balance between Power & Grace.   

“The fashion show is a tradition here,” said Golden. “We have been doing it ever since I got here. I usually bring my family along with me and they enjoy it. I can’t wait for it to get here this year.

“We know the fans love coming out for the fashion show and we just want to encourage them to do so because we are bringing the show.”
