It is an honor for Rex to introduce their guest this week. Rocky Bleier joins them on the podcast and you should remember him as a Pittsburgh Steeler, but did you know what college team he played for? Rocky was a Notre Dame football player under legendary coach Ara Parseghian. He also participated in the game of the century against Michigan State in 1966. Rocky was one of Rex’s all-time favorites. He epitomizes what an American should be in Rex’s eyes as he served his country with honor in Vietnam and worked incredibly hard to overcome his injuries to make the Steelers roster. Listen in as Rocky shares his college experiences as well as the trials he went through not only in Vietnam, but in coming back to perform at a high level in the NFL.
