Football: Jeannette's Hall thrilled by call from Steelers

Ray Fittipaldo profiles Jeannette graduate Jordan Hall, who is trying to make the Steelers roster.

"A couple of weeks ago it got to the point where Jordan Hall was contemplating life without football.

It seemed like an appropriate time to come to grips. It was the middle of June and he wasn't on an NFL offseason roster. Training camps around 32 NFL cities were going to start in a month and he was without a home.

Then, finally, the phone rang. The Steelers wanted to sign him and they wanted him to participate in their minicamp. Hall hopped on a plane and for the next three days he suited up next to players he watched win Super Bowls when he was in elementary and middle school in Jeannette.

Next month, he will drive 20 minutes up Route 30 to Saint Vincent College to take part in the training camp practices he used to attend when he was a child."
