LATROBE (KDKA) – The road to a Super Bowl championship is a long one. For the Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans, they hope the road begins at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.
For the 53rd straight year, training camp will be held at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe. Players must report to camp on July 25. The first practice open to the public will be held the next day.
The first practice in pads will be held on Saturday, July 28.
In all, 16 practices will be open to the public. The fan-favorite night practice will be held on Aug. 3 at Latrobe Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m.
Over the years, some players have arrived at camp in interesting ways.
While some players arrived in luxury vehicles, Brett Keisel once pulled up in a dump truck.
No one has topped Keisel since, but some have tried.
