Woodley makes visit to summer camp

Steelers’ linebacker LaMarr Woodley visited the Pittsburgh Public Schools Summer Dreamers Academy, a summer learning program for students K-8, to share the importance of education.

“Don’t allow anyone to tell you what you can’t do, because you can do anything you want to do,” Woodley told the students. “I had to start paying attention in school.  I had to start listening to my parents, start listening to my teachers at school. I had football and basketball taken away from me because I was a class clown and didn’t pay attention to my parents and teachers. I did spend a lot of time in detention and I knew that without those things, everything would be taken away from me.”

Woodley encouraged the kids not to be a class clown, but instead stay focused and understand the importance of their education. He thinks the program done by the Public Schools this summer is the perfect way to keep the students focused on that.

“It shows the kind of program you are running here when you have those kinds of energy levels from the teachers early in the morning and the commitment from the parents getting their kids here,” said Woodley. “Having the opportunity to go to this summer school program is great.”
