)-- Keirsten Sires of Locker Room Talk® (www.LockerRoomTalk.com), a college coach review website that is as an invaluable resource for high school student-athletes undergoing the collegiate sports recruiting process, recently conducted an in-depth interview with Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers on playing high school and college sports, his experiences with recruiting, and his advice for young student-athletes. Troy Polamalu played college football for the USC Trojans, where he worked hard and earned Consensus All-American honors and was a two-time First Team All-Pac 10. The Pittsburgh Steelers chose him in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft. While in the NFL, Troy played in two Super Bowls and eight Pro Bowls. He was a First Team All-Pro four times, along with many other awards. After his twelve-year career in Pittsburgh, he finally retired and became a father of two.

“It was extremely exciting and interesting to interview such a well-known and well-respected former pro athlete,” said Keirsten Sires, co-founder of Locker Room Talk. “Troy Polamalu shared some interesting insights and valuable advice for both high school athletes interested in the college sports recruiting process, and college athletes wanting to succeed in their sport.”
Here is a quote from the interview: “The advice that I find most important is to do whatever it is that can make you successful as an athlete. Which is the same thing that will make you successful as a student and vice versa so that is why I think it is really important for someone to be a good student-athlete and not just an athlete,” said Troy Polamalu.
