Steeler player swamped by mail since autograph vow



Published: Fri, August 8, 2014 @ 10:43 a.m.

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — The post office at the small college where the Pittsburgh Steelers hold training camp has been swamped with mail since wide receiver Antonio Brown made a vow on Facebook to autograph anything fans send him.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says Brown posted the message on July 28 saying, “If I don’t get a chance to sign something for you at camp just send info to me.” He listed his dormitory room at St. Vincent College, the private, Catholic school where the Steelers have held training camp for more than 40 years.

Now, Brown says, his room is “full to the top with mail.” And Maria Schifano, assistant manager of the post office, says it’s still pouring in.

She says Brown received more than 100 packages on one day alone and says, “He’s going to be busy.”

It's a shame how people make an idol out of someone who can catch a ball, but don't even recognize local people who volunteer their time, effort and often their own personal money toward helping communities.
