    That’s a very painful recovery he’s in for, unfortunately. I wish him all the best. The Steelers will provide him with the very best medical care possible.

    Hopefully being immediately airlifted to a burn center with the highest level of care and expertise will significantly help in Coach Wilson’s recovery. It may be more of a marathon recovery than a sprint, but the same hard work, discipline, work ethic and drive and resilience that professional coaches have to succeed at that level will help him in his recovery as well. And in a business of relationships and a truly supportive organization, I hope he has all the support and inspiration to keep that mental toughness as well to heal and power through the tougher times. All the best.
