The Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of work to do before the start of the 2022 NFL season, but that didn’t stop Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin from taking some time out of his day to help kids in the Pittsburgh community.

According to NFL insider Jay Glazer, Tomlin reportedly saw some kids fighting in the street while driving, and pulled over to stop the altercation, later spending a number of hours with the kids after this altercation.

He then saw these same kids the next day at a local community center to be his guest at a Steelers practice, where they were seen going through drills with star running back Najee Harris.

This is a truly special moment for those young kids, and many around the NFL world are taking to social media to applaud Tomlin for his generosity and making a difference in the kids lives.

Tomlin has long been one of the most beloved coaches in all of football by his players, and it is stories like this that further reaffirm that notion.

Other than Bill Belichick in New England, Tomlin is the longest-tenured coach in the NFL with the Steelers, starting with the franchise in 2007.

That has largely been due to the team’s consistency over the years thanks to his steady coaching alongside former Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

After Roethlisberger’s retirement this offseason, there have certainly been doubts about the team’s chances heading into the upcoming season, and it will be interesting to see whether or not Tomlin will be able to overcome some unproven quarterback play heading into the season.
