Two Steelers may come to Hokies-Panthers game
November 2, 2001

Two current Pittsburgh Steelers players may come to the Tech-Pittsburgh game Saturday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Tech tight end Keith Willis left two of his tickets in the name of Steelers tailback Jerome Bettis and receiver Plaxico Burress. Tech administrators originally thought Willis was joking, but Willis and Burress know each other and played basketball against each other while growing up in the Tidewater area. Willis went to Norview High in Norfolk, while Burress went to Green Run High in Virginia Beach. The Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field on Sunday.
