Former Steelers offensive line coach and NFL Hall of Famer (2010) Russ Grimm, a 1977 Southmoreland High School graduate, was at the Scotties football practice Thursday as the team prepares for Friday’s WPIAL Class AA Interstate Conference game against Jeannette.
Grimm also is expected to attend Friday’s game, which will be played at California (Pa.) University’s Adamson Stadium because Southmoreland’s Russ Grimm Field in Alverton is being repaired after a flash flood on Aug. 23.
He also addressed a group Thursday trying to form an alumni organization at the high school.
Grimm was an All-American center at Pitt and played his NFL career with the Washington Redskins. He was a quarterback and linebacker in high school.
