Inside the Lines: Steel Valley football coach Rod Steele

Written by Craig Meyer on .

In this week's Inside the Lines, Craig Meyer profiles Steel Valley football coach Rod Steele.

"On Friday nights in the fall, Rod Steele is perhaps the most visible man in all of Munhall, Homestead and West Homestead.

The Steel Valley football coach is entering his fifth season in that position, giving him the kind of community cache that is unique to high school football coaches in pigskin-crazed portions of the country such as Western Pennsylvania.

It's a position that engrains him in the district's fabric, but it's in a much less publicized role where he makes an equally big impact.

In addition to his duties as the coach of the Ironmen, Steele is a West Homestead police officer, a job he has worked for the past 15 years."
