PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier has teamed with a Pittsburgh clothing store to create t-shirts that will benefit a good cause.
Shazier announced on his Instagram account Friday night that he and his family worked with Shop412 to “create a design … that would show our city how much drive and passion [Shazier has] for it.”
I’ve fought my hardest to be a leader and a force on the field for Pittsburgh, bleeding black and gold on the front lines. Pittsburgh has embraced me—and I have embraced it back. It truly is a place like no other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the last few weeks, my family and I have tasked Shop 412 with a very important job—to create a design with me that would show our city how much drive and passion I have for it. I wanted to make something that could serve as a representation of my spirit, of my inner fight, and also be a creative way to bring some fire to my squad and to our fans as we head proudly into these playoffs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This Saturday, 1.13.2018 at 11AM Shop 412 and I will release an exclusive first batch of our official #412xShazier collaboration in-store at Shop 412. Our collaboration is also available, right now, for pre-order online on Shop 412’s website; pre-orders will be accepted through Monday, and will begin to ship in the next 2-3 weeks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, a portion of the proceeds of each tee sale will go to benefit Spinal Research as well as The Boys & Girls Club of Western PA. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The support over the last few weeks has been overwhelming and I can’t thank you all enough. Just know, that without question, I #SHALIEVE in all of you too. [link in bio]
