The Steelers announced today the team’s Hall of Honor Class of 2018 will be unveiled at an event at Saint Vincent College at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 28, following the second annual Steelers Charity Walk at Saint Vincent College.
Details regarding the Hall of Honor Class of 2018 announcement ceremony will be forthcoming as the committee of Team President Art Rooney II, former team executives Joe Gordon and Tony Quatrini, Bob Labriola of Steelers.com and local media personalities Stan Savran and Andrew Stockey are in the process of finalizing this year’s induction class.
The Steelers’ Hall of Honor, established with its inaugural class of 27 members in 2017, is comprised of former players, coaches, and front office personnel who were integral in creating and sustaining the franchise’s success dating back to when the team was founded in 1933.
Each Hall of Honor inductee receives a replica of a solid steel football, which will replicate the original that was given to Steelers’ founder Arthur J. Rooney Sr. by the United States Steel Corporation and United Steel Workers in 1982 on the occasion of the team’s 50th Season.
The second annual Steelers Charity Walk, to benefit The Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research, will also take place at Saint Vincent College on Saturday, July 28.
The honorary co-chair for the walk will be Steelers Alum Merrill Hoge. Participants will hear Hoge reflect on his memories of playing for Coach Noll at 8:30 a.m. at Chuck Noll Field followed by the walk at 9 a.m.

The Steelers launched The Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research in November of 2016 to support continued research and education regarding brain injuries and treatment of sports-related concussions. The Foundation will fund research that it believes is the most promising in the area of sports-related concussions and related conditions. To help best evaluate which research programs to fund, some of the most renowned neurosurgeons in the country will serve on a national medical advisory panel.
Joe Greene and Garrett Webster, the son of late Steelers Hall of Famer Mike Webster, served as honorary co-chairs for the Steelers Charity Walk that benefited the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research.
