Steel City Underground

I was born and raised in Erie, PA with a love of football. When I was a young boy, my uncle tried to brainwash me into becoming a Dallas Cowboys fan. He would sit me in front of the TV and put on Cowboys film from the 90’s. One day, out of the blue, I broke free from the hypnosis I was under and escaped from the dark side. It was then I decided I would follow in my grandfather’s footsteps and become a Steelers fan. I am married to my best friend, Emily, and we have two beautiful little girls. I’m a Physical Education teacher by trade, but I’m the biggest football fan you will ever meet. I love writing about football, and I co-own and operate my own football website,, with my cousin and brother. I’m a straight shooting fan who tries to be as objective as possible, even when it means other Steelers fans might disagree with me. I tell it like I see it.

Charting the similarities of Mike Hilton to Senquez Golson

If you watched a lot of SEC football back in 2013 and 2014, then you probably knew the name Senquez Golson. He was a small, fiery competitor from Mississippi who was drastically undersized for the cornerback position. In his career, he matched up against wide receivers like Mike Evans, Sammie …
