To Mr. Dan Rooney, Sr.


“People are what makes Pittsburgh special. Why the tradition, why the history, why the most Lombardi’s? To me it starts at the top. That’s him, Art his son and his family. When he was in Pittsburgh, we saw him every day. After every game win or lose. For us to see our owner every day, whether out at practice, just working out and them saying ‘hi’ to you, sit down and have lunch with you, to me that speaks volumes.” — Ben, from an interview with the Irish Examiner, July 4, 2014.
