Pittsburgh football will honor Dan Rooney at their spring game on Saturday.
Rooney, who passed away on Thursday, was a Pittsburgh native and longtime employee, chairman and owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The son of Steelers' founder Art Rooney, he was one of the most beloved sports figures of the last few decades, repeatedly earning praise from coaches, players, fans and the media for his role in the game football and much more.

And on Saturday, the team who shares a stadium that Rooney helped create, will pay tribute to a legend with unique helmets. Pittsburgh Panthers' head coach Pat Narduzzi tweeted a video of the helmet that features their 'Pitt' logo on one side and the Steelers' logo on the other.
Our players will wear this helmet in tomorrow's Spring Game to pay our respects to a great man, Mr. Dan Rooney. #PittsburghLegend pic.twitter.com/yFNFT56ZaI
