The Pittsburgh Steelers have a long-standing tradition of supporting youth football in Western Pennsylvania.
In 2016, the Steelers added to their youth football programming line-up with the new "Steelers High School Football Showcase, presented by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette."
This year, the program returns bigger and better than ever.
The “Steelers High School Football Showcase” allows fans the opportunity to vote on the game to be featured by the Steelers each week. The collection of games will be nominated by a panel of experts, including staff writers from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The game selected by fans will be announced each Thursday on Steelers.com. A special highlights package of each week’s game will appear on Steelers.com each Saturday and will be introduced as part of the game entertainment at subsequent Steelers home games.
The Steelers also have social media platforms to support its the “Steelers High School Football Showcase” and other youth football programming. Follow @SteelersYouthFB on Twitter and steelersyouthfb on Snapchat. Each week, these social platforms will cover the build up to the “Steelers High School Football Showcase” each week, as well as provide real time images from the games themselves.
The “Steelers High School Football Showcase” is just one of a number of Steelers’ initiatives supporting youth football in Western Pennsylvania, including annual youth camps, training camp education seminars, coaching clinics, grant opportunities and game day recognition activities.
