Steelers DE Cameron Heyward nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award

Every year all 32 NFL teams nominate one of their own to be their representative for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year award. For the 2018-2019 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have made their selection, and it is none other than defensive end Cameron Heyward.

Heyward, who started the “Heyward House” charity, has become a fixture in the city of Pittsburgh helping as many at-risk youth as he possibly can. The Heyward House has done a tremendous job in helping organizations such as: Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania, DKMS, KidsVoice, Smyrna Stars Baksetball Club and other after school fitness programs.
