When was lost for the season in November with a torn pectoral muscle, those on the defensive line knew they had no choice but to step up their game.

It wasn’t going to be one player who was going to step in and carry the load with the leader of the line out. It was going to be all hands on deck, because losing a player like Heyward was a blow for the line and the defense as a whole.

Sometimes one player can make a difference, and Hall of Famer Joe Greene saw that last season when Cameron Heyward was placed on the reserve/injured list with a pectoral injury in November.

There is a reason Cameron Heyward is one of the Steelers’ defensive captains. He is a player his teammates can count on, someone who is a leader in the locker room and on the field. And off the field, he takes the same approach. It wasn’t just missing his play that Greene thought had an impact, but also just his presence. Not having Heyward on the field from a leadership standpoint is something Greene felt was missing for the defense as well.

Heyward believes in giving back to the community. He understands that he can make a difference in the lives of others, whether it’s through his time, words or actions. And on Monday night, he did just that when he hosted his second annual “Steel and Steaks,” at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse. The event benefits The Heyward House Foundation, with the main beneficiaries being KidsVoice and the Boys & Girls Club in Pittsburgh.
