Steelers CB William Gay Honored By Hometown Boys And Girls Club


Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay was back home in Tallahassee, Florida on Friday where he had a room dedicated in his honor at the Greg McCray Boys and Girls Club, according to Jordan Culver of the Tallahassee Democrat.

“The Boys and Girls Club, that’s where I was at since I was 9 years old all the way until I was 16,” said Gay. “Just coming back here — now I’m getting a room? There were days where we’d have to fight just to get into it before it got too many memberships for the Boys and Girls Club. So it\’s an honor to have a room named after me.”

Gay, who attended James S. Rickards High School in Tallahassee, was joined by several of his Steelers teammates for the dedication, and they all sighed autographs for the kids afterwards. Gay also let it be known that he will always call Florida\’s Capital City his home.

“Tallahassee will forever be my home,” said Gay. “Regardless of what happens this is always where I come to. This is where I always feel comfortable at.”

Gay will remain in Tallahassee for the remainder of the weekend and will host his annual football camp at his former high school on Saturday, which is free for kids between the ages of 5-17 to attend. Helping Gay out at the camp are Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, Curtis Brown, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Antonio Brown.

Following the football camp, Gay will host a pool party during the afternoon and a nightclub party at a local area club.
