Jason Capizzi

The Office of Alumni Relations hosted a special picnic at Steelers training camp August 2, 2009.

More than 110 faculty, staff, alumni, and families attended the event. John Simpson ’79, a Steelers event marketing manager, donated twenty VIP wristbands for the event, allowing twenty visitors to watch the 2008 Steelers highlight DVD, on-field viewing access, and an autograph session with Deshea Townsend and former IUP Crimson Hawk Jason Capizzi. For those who did not get a close-up view, Development Officer Patti Simmons ’72 snapped this shot of Capizzi.
