Pittsburgh Steelers players weren’t the only participants in training camp drills this week.

A group of kids who Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin saw fighting in the street made their way to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, as the Super Bowl XLIII-winning coach’s guests.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, who broke the news, provided video of the kids at training camp doing drills with running back Najee Harris as Tomlin looked on.
