It was a busy week preparing for 2016 Steelers Training Camp and Kevin Greene's Hall of Fame enshrinement.
It took Lynn Swann 14 years to get into the Hall of Fame, but it was worth the wait.
Good things come to those who wait, and for Lynn Swann that wait had to have seemed like an eternity. It took 14 years for the former Steelers wide receiver to get the call from the Hall of Fame, but it was worth the every minute of it.
The annual event in Latrobe also features Steelers Fest, a full practice and fireworks.
The Steelers will go back to their high school roots during training camp when they host Friday Night Lights on Aug. 5 at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. This year there will be an added dimension this year that will bring the excitement of the practice to fans who won't be able to attend. ESPN's SportsCenter on the Road will be broadcasting live from Latrobe Memorial Stadium from 7-9 p.m.

Who is your football mentor or inspiration? I guess it started with my dad, Keith Cockrell. He's the one who got me involved in it early on. I was about three or four when I started playing football. He was my mentor all the way through.
Jack Lambert wasn't a linebacker to be messed with.
He was one of the most menacing linebackers ever to play in the NFL, known fondly as "Jack Splat" or "Dracula in Cleats." When opposing players looked across the line, they would see the fierce look in his eyes, the intense glare, the missing teeth, and there were times they didn't want to take the snap.
