John Stallworth was honored in February 2018, with the “Dapper Dan” Lifetime Achievement award. He is pictured, above, being introduced by Steelers President, Art Rooney, Jr. Also honored was Kevin Colbert, Steelers Vice President and General Manager.
Stallworth said looking at the list of past winners of the award, which includes some of his former teammates, is humbling. “The names, as I look back at them, are just stored in my memory,” said Stallworth. “To be considered part of that group is fantastic. Joe Greene, Franco Harris, those names jumped out at me. The Dapper Dan is a tradition of honoring folks who have been a part of the scene in Pittsburgh and touched Pittsburgh in various ways.
“Then when I think about the charities the Dapper Dan has helped, and how helpful that has been for so many, it gives me a great sense of pride of being a part of that group. You want to do things to help so many folks. I am proud of that.”
