The wait is over! The National Football League (NFL) will kick off its 100th season tonight with the first round of preseason games. Pittsburgh … not only home to METALCON this year, but also home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the oldest football franchises in NFL history. Steeler legend Rocky Bleier, who first played in 1968 and then again from 1971- 1980, will speak at METALCON 2019 on Leadership through Teamwork, Perseverance & Hope. Hosted by U.S. Steel, this Keynote Address will take place on Wednesday, October 16 from 11:00 am – 12:00 in the main theatre on the show floor.
Rocky Bleier is a four-time NFL Superbowl Champion and embodies heroism, determination, teamwork and leadership. After being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1968, he was drafted by the U.S. Army to fight in Vietnam just one year later. Bleier was quickly thrust into combat, seriously wounded and told he would never walk again. He bravely rehabilitated himself to condition for re-entry into the NFL and defeating all odds, regained his running back position.
Rocky Bleier’s story – a gripping tale of courage on both the football fields of America and the battle fields of Vietnam – has held audiences in rapt attention for years. Yet, the motivational message behind it, detailing how ordinary people can become extraordinary achievers, defines success in the new American century. With the same optimism, sense of humor and steadfast determination that were his trademarks as a Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Bleier takes audiences from his early years through his professional career and talks about the lessons he learned along the way…lessons that we all can benefit from. This is a session you will not want to miss!
Mr. Bleier recently served as the honorary chairman for the 6th Annual Freedom Warrior Golf Outing and Gala in Ohio.
