LATROBE, Pa. – At dawn’s early light, or twilight’s last gleaming, he was there. Wearing a straw hat to protect his head from the sun, he tended the fields. In those days, Saint Vincent College grew acres of corn, but Brother Patrick Lacey’s crop was grass and his tireless work helped turn what would’ve been just a big lawn into football fields suitable for NFL players.

Brother Lacey died last Saturday, the day the Steelers opened their 2010 season with a preseason game against the Detroit Lions (http://www.steelers.com/news/article-1/Brother-Patrick-Lacey-79/01c71c9a-eebf-4a41-8f58-72e155625271#). He was 79.

For a generation of Steelers players and coaches, he was Brother Pat, and he was everywhere during training camp...........
