Polamalu part of a dual-athlete Madden cover

In Chestnut Ridge, District 5, Football on April 24, 2009 at 2:17 pm

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will be on the cover of the new ‘Madden NFL 10’ football game alongside former Pitt star Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals.

I mention this because Polamalu is not only a fan favorite in Pittsburgh, he’s also got a favorite fan in District 5.

Chestnut Ridge student Heather Miller, who suffers from a rare form of cancer, has formed a fast friendship with Polamalu. The two exchange text messages, including a pair of them from Polamalu during Media Day before the Super Bowl. The Altoona Mirror has a great piece on the relationship.

From all indications, Polamalu is a first-rate person, not just a sensational football player. Here’s to Polamalu breaking the Madden curse and prospering on and off the field.
