PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Earlier this month, former Steelers scout Bill Nunn was inducted into the Pro Football of Fame. Now, another former Steeler has named a calf on his farm in his honor.
Former Steelers defensive end and two-time Super Bowl champion Brett Keisel, who grew up on his family’s 1,000 acre ranch, has turned from football to farming. Keisel has a farm located outside of Pittsburgh and a lot of the animals are named after Steelers legends and former teammates, such as Bull Cowher and Dick LeBull.
Now, Keisel has added a calf named ‘Nunny’ to the mix, named after Bill Nunn. “This girl is a first round draft pick for sure!” Keisel said on social media.
