Some fans in Steeler Nation go to incredible lengths to show their loyalty. Now one of them might be looking for JuJu Smith-Schuster to make good.
Joel Schock, of Lancaster, approached Smith-Schuster for an autograph at training camp Friday. Smith-Schuster told Channel 11, “He had the Steelers logo tattooed in his head. So he had a mohawk, and he was like, 'Can you sign my helmet?' I was like, 'What helmet?' I signed his head.”
After that, and after the practice Friday, Smith-Schuster was asked if he thought the fan might get a real tattoo of his signature.
“He might. If he does that’s lit. If he gets that tattoo on his head, I’ll give him any tickets to any game,” said Smith-Schuster.
On Saturday, Schock got the tattoo and posted it on his Facebook page. He told Channel 11 he bleeds black and gold and is proud to wear the tattoo.
Smith-Schuster not only made good on his promise, he took it a step further. He announced on Twitter Schock now has season tickets.
