We know he loves football, but here are a few more things Pittsburgh Steeler Cam Heyward keeps close to his heart:

  1. “Family means a lot me. Being here, my son gets to see his great-grandparents, aunts, and uncles. My mom comes up a bunch. My wife’s family is from Cleveland, so they come up a lot. Which, they were never big Browns fans, so we never have to worry about that!”
  2. “I love Pittsburgh — driving around, going to all the famous places. I love getting to learn more about Pittsburgh, whether it’s football, baseball, hockey; going to the [Carnegie] Science Center; going to the Heinz History Center and [The Western Pennsylvania] Sports Museum. There are so many unique things about Pittsburgh.”
  3. “I’m a big movie person. I’ll watch whatever, as long as it tells a story, has a point, and doesn’t drag.”
  4. “I love to sleep, when I can. You rarely sleep when you become a dad.”

See Heyward and the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. For more about the defensive standout, click here
