Steelers’ defensive end Cameron Heyward returned home on Friday night to host the Wounded Warrior Amputee Sports team challenge Atlanta’s All-Stars, a group of NBA & NFL players, in a basketball game at his alma mater, Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Georgia.

The event was held to help raise awareness for the disabled and demonstrate that they can still be fully functional and compete in sports, even with the loss of a limb.

“It was great to meet some of the wounded warriors. It’s humbling to be around them,” said Heyward. “They gave a lot for our country and have done so much to protect us. It’s huge that we were able to do this to honor them.”
