Fierce Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley was the focus of the 15th annual Mel Blount Youth Home All-Star Celebrity Roast. More than 850 guests filled the ballroom of the Wyndam Grand Friday night to rub shoulders with Steeler greats including Mean Joe Greene, John Stallworth and Dwayne Woodruff. The event benefits the Mel Blount Youth Home, a 300-acre farm in Claysville that provides a healthy environment for at-risk young men. Greeting guests during the VIP reception were Mel and TiAnda Blount. Among those mingling and meandering around the mega sports memorabilia auction were Art Rooney II, Craig Wolfley and John Banaszak.
