LaRod Stephens-Howling visit
Updated: Wednesday, July 24 2013, 10:27 AM EDT
Earlier this year, Johnstown native LaRod Stephens-Howling was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Monday, he was back home spending time with the youth of Johnstown.
Fitness and Wellness Academy in downtown Johnstown is the home gym for Stephens-Howling when he's in Johnstown, and he supports the gym's youth outreach programs that help teach kids about proper health and fitness. Monday, he took the opportunity to meet and greet fans, taking pictures and signing autographs for the kids at the gym.
Stephens-Howling called this the highlight of his visit.
"I wanted to give them somebody to look up to, it's always great to have that."
The first time Stephens-Howling will don the black and gold will be when Steelers training camp opens this weekend. Stephens-Howling is one of many running backs on the roster for Mike Tomlin's squad. The opportunity to be an offensive threat is part of the role Stephens-Howling is looking to fill for Pittsburgh.
"I'll have the chance to do a lot of things, from being a 3rd down back, to a scat back, catching passes or special teams. It's open, so I'll have a chance to compete to get that role."
