STEELER WILL JOHNSON VISITS HALL HOME
On December 5th, the Hall Home residents and staff were treated to a visit by Pittsburgh Steeler Will Johnson. He talked to the youth about his past and how he overcame adversity to be in the NFL. The residents asked questions about his favorite music and how it feels to be hit by a 300 pound man, as well as his future goals.
Will was very gracious, spending an hour and one-half answering questions and signing autographs, all after a long day of practice and a concussion earlier in the week that he received in the Baltimore game.
