Everyone knows the life of a professional athlete can be an uphill battle at times.
In most cases, these young adults are thrown into a situation that it very aggressive on and off the field. The new financial situation, relationships and on-field performance issues push many people over the edge.
The Steelers have acknowledged those issues, and have went with new measures to help players cope with the issues. For the past five years, Pittsburgh has allowed pastor Chad Johnson to counsel the players when they desire guidance.
The job description for Johnson, is simple: Teach the Bible, add the "life" element to the football grind. On game days, he quietly roams the sideline. But his work is done well before kickoff.
"These guys need somebody that's not just football that they can trust that isn't weighing their stat sheet or looking at their performance and equating value to their performance," Johnson said. "Hopefully I could provide a breath of fresh air in a very pressurized situation."
