The Steelers are having a hell of a year.
Right now, they sit firmly atop the AFC North, with the only red letter day on the schedule coming the 17th of this months against the rival Patriots. That will most likely decide the 1 seed in the AFC.
A huge part of that is the “Killer B’s” – Pittsburg’s new regime that has replaced the old school, defense first, blue collar ground and pound 70’s “Steel Curtain” moniker. Ben (Rothelesberger- QB) Brown (Antonio- WR) Bell (Le’Veon Bell) and Bryant (Martavis-WR).
The Steelers are flying high, and in no small part, is that due to the young man who lines up out wide, the last of the B’s, our man Martavis Bryant.
Bryant hails from a sleepy southern town of under 2000 people that has only one stop light. His high school shut down after his sophomore season and he was forced to transfer to another high school in the county. Growing up in Calhoun Falls, South Carolina – there was no father figure, and he was raised by two women, his mother and grandmother. Ironically they taught him how to be a man.
Bryant grew up in the shadows of Clemson University, about 45 minutes away with no traffic. “It was always a dream of mine to play for Clemson. I didn’t even think twice about any other college.” Said Bryant.
He was drafted in 2014 by Pittsburg, and although he’s had a rough road at times, it’s clear he’s arrived. Bryant is a bonafide NFL star, and his freak athletic ability has given him the moniker “Alien” from coaches. He combined his love of fashion with his nickname and created a line of street athletic fashion that features hats and shirts, with plans to expand into more items soon.
Here’s 2 super dope t shirts on Wanderset right now from the Alien himself.
