One of the joys of the NFL preseason for college football fans is watching their favorite players begin to make a name for themselves at the next level. On Saturday, as the Pittsburgh Steelers were taking on the Detroit Lions in a preseason matchup, former Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth was doing just that.

Freiermuth scored his first two touchdowns of the preseason in a victory over the Lions. Freiermuth was responsible for both of Pittsburgh’s first two scores of the game, as he caught a pair of touchdown passes from Ben Roethlisberger in the first quarter.

Freiermuth certainly was living in the moment, and he seems to have his post-touchdown celebration routine with teammate Eric Ebron down…

After the game, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was complimentary of the rookie tight end, suggesting he hopes NFL teams around the league weren’t watching too closely.

The Steelers drafted Freiermuth with a second-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft last April, and he is in position to be a long-time contributor in the Steelers offense. If he continues the kind of production he showed in this preseason game, Steeler fans are going to be big fans for a long time in western Pennsylvania.
