PITTSBURGH (Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN) —  Steelers first-round draft pick Cameron Heyward joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about becoming a Steeler.

Heyward talked about his off-season workouts this summer with the current lockout in place, saying he has been conditioning and staying in shape.  He talked of veterans such as Chris Hoke, Casey Hampton, and Brett Keisel who have already made a name for themselves whereas he is the young guy who needs to prove himself.

When asked about his anticipation of becoming a Steeler, Heyward said he is thrilled to join such an elite squad and cannot wait to meet the guys.  Heyward’s family is from the Pittsburgh area and Cameron talked about getting Steelers gear ever since he was little.  He touched on the story of being by his father’s side during his time of bone cancer saying part of the reason he chose OSU over PITT was the fact PITT was his Dad’s school and he did not want to overshadow his legacy.

Heyward talked about the mess in Columbus saying people want to put it behind them and move forward.  He said Jim Tressel is someone who only wants the best for his players, but acknowledged the fact he made mistakes.  Terrelle Pryor was also brought up in the Ohio State University conversation saying Pryor feels bad for letting his team down and wishes him the best.

Cameron Heyward ended the conversation saying his expectations for the upcoming football season is to do all the Steelers ask of him and grasp the playbook.
