Lafayette’s third all-time leading rusher, Ross Scheuerman ’15, has signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“The Steelers’ opportunity was the best for me toward the end of the draft and free agency,” says Scheuerman.
“I couldn’t be happier at this point, and I’m excited to get out to Pittsburgh.”
An economics major, Scheuerman received the Charles L. Albert ’08 Award, given to student-athletes who are judged to be the most outstanding. He rushed for 3,504 yards and 31 touchdowns in four seasons, marks that place him third and fourth, respectively, at Lafayette.
On Nov. 22, he hammered his name into Lafayette football lore forever, entertaining the sold-out crowd at Yankee Stadium with a 304-yard, three-touchdown performance in the 150th meeting of college football’s most-played rivalry. The 45-carry showing garnered him The Sports Network FCS Offensive Player of the Week honors, was the top rushing performance by an FCS player in 2014, and set a Patriot League record for rushing yards in a game.
