PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers Nation knows no boundaries.

In fact, the most recent Steelers Camp was held south of the border.

Former Steelers Craig Wolfley and Tunch Ilkin teamed up with five present-day players last weekend in Mexico City to teach the art of “Futbol Americano.”

Steelers Go South Of The Border:

“The adults’ camp, we were expecting maybe 300, and we got 600,” Wolfley recalls. “The next day, we had the young kids, and we had, I don’t know, maybe 300. But they were all the same, in the sense they were full of passion and energy, zip and zeal for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steelers Nation south of the border is ‘ginormous.’”

Wolfley says fans were especially taken by Steeler Brett Keisel’s beard.

“Reporters were asking questions of the beard,” he said. “Not even Keisel, just the beard.”

He admits something might have been lost in translation.

“We’re going along, you’re explaining, you know,” he said. “When you’re down there, you’re coaching them up and everything like that. And they tell you afterwards, after the group goes out, ‘You know, they didn’t understand a word you said!’”
