Peachtree Ridge to honor Steelers’ Heyward on Friday

Peachtree Ridge will honor alum Cameron Heyward, now with the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, at the Lions’ varsity football game Friday against Parkview. The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m.

Heyward, a first-round choice in 2011 out of Ohio State, will attend the game and will be honored for his career on the matrix board prior to the game. He also will serve as an honorary captain at the coin toss.

The defensive end played football and basketball at Peachtree Ridge, helping the Lions to the 2006 state title in football.
