Steelers' Keisel raises money for local charities with fishing trip



BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. - Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel took a group of local people fishing Monday morning.

The lucky group were winners of a contest held to raise money for local charities.

The small group got the chance to relax and bait fish with Keisel at a private hunting and fishing club in Bridgeville.

Keisel said it’s important to give back to the community as much as he can.

“Today was a no-brainer for me because I was able to have the opportunity to come out and fish with my little boy and several other awesome Steeler fans. It’s been a lot of fun,” Keisel said.

The fishing trip raised money for charities such as Habitat for Humanity and Variety Pittsburgh.
