MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) – DeAngelo Williams pays for 53 mammograms to honor his mom, who died of breast cancer.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams announced earlier this month that his nonprofit organization, The DeAngelo Williams Foundation, will cover the cost of 53 mammograms at hospitals located in Charlotte, North Carolina and Pittsburgh.

Williams, a former University of Memphis All American, is a staunch supporter of breast cancer awareness.

In 2014, Williams’ mother, Sandra Hill, died after battling breast cancer. She was just 53 years old. He also lost his four aunts to the disease, but not before leading a push in 2009 to allow NFL players to wear pink cleats throughout October for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Ryan Shazier is a freak. This much was clear before Wednesday.

But a post-practice scene described on the social media accounts of Pittsburgh Steelers players reinforces Shazier’s elite athleticism.

Linebacker Vince Williams posted on twitter that Shazier was getting ready to race the Steelers’ top receivers — Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates — in a 40-yard dash.

“We got a race out here today,” Williams said.

Brown’s SnapChat showed a video clip of the race, which appeared to show Shazier winning. Williams later tweeted, “@RyanShazier the fastest player on the team.”
