Steelers to again conduct camp drills at high schools

The Steelers will continue their tradition of conducting two training camp practices at local high school football fields.

The Steelers will practice at Latrobe High School on July 31 and at Greensburg’s Offutt Field on Aug. 14. Both practices will begin at 7:05 p.m., preceded by 15-minute autograph sessions beginning at 6:45 p.m.

“These practices enable us to branch out into the community and allow fans who may not get an opportunity to visit training camp a chance to see us in person,” Steelers coach Bill Cowher said. “It also is good for our team’s preparation by giving us a break from the regular two-a-day camp.”

Admission for the Latrobe practice is $3 for adults, $1 for children 17 years old and under and senior citizens over 65. Children under 12 will be admitted free if accompanied by a parent. Proceeds benefit the Greater Latrobe School District athletic program.

At Greensburg, admission is $3 for adults and free for children under 18 and senior citizens. Proceeds benefit the Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department and the Greensburg Salem athletic department.

Tickets for each event will be sold at the gates.

The Steelers report to training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe on July 24.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
