Steelers’ Alejandro Villanueva talks about life as student-athlete at West Point

November 10, 2018

Last weekend, the Army hockey team was in town to play Robert Morris on Neville Island. So my broadcast partner on the games — Mike Prisuta of the WDVE morning show — and I thought it would be a good idea to talk to Steelers offensive tackle Al Villanueva.

Since Villanueva was a member of the Black Knights football team, he seemed like a good person to speak with to get a gauge on what it takes to be a student athlete at an institution that has as many physical and education demands as West Point does.

The conversation was entertaining and gave a great “behind the curtain” look at the challenges of being a student-athlete at West Point.
