Steeler player swamped by mail since autograph vow

Friday, August 8, 2014

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - The post office at the small college where the Pittsburgh Steelers hold training camp has been swamped with mail since wide receiver Antonio Brown made a vow on Facebook to autograph anything fans send him.

Brown posted the message on July 28 saying, "If I don't get a chance to sign something for you at camp just send info to me." He listed his dormitory room at St. Vincent College, the private, Catholic school where the Steelers have held training camp for more than 40 years.

Now, Brown's room is full of mail. And Maria Schifano, assistant manager of the post office, says it's still pouring in.

Schifano tells The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which first reported the player's posting, that Brown received more than 100 packages on one day.
