Members of the Jeannette Little Hawks youth football team on Thursday thanked Steelers owner Art Rooney II for supporting their effort to win a national championship.

The team presented Rooney with a framed jersey and team photo on the sidelines at Heinz Field before the Steelers exhibition game against the Carolina Panthers.

Rooney donated $5,000 to the team in December to help defray the cost of a trip to Canton, Ohio, where the Little Hawks finished third in the National Championship tournament.
