PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) – Four Pitt players, three WPIAL stars, two Pittsburgh Steelers on an All-Decade NFL Team. 

The Pro Football Hall of Fame voters came up with best National Football League players of the 2010s and released the list on Monday.

Penn Hills, Pitt and Rams star Aaron Donald is one of only eight unanimous selections.  Donald has played in 94 games in the decade with 72 sacks and 173 quarterback hits.  Donald joins Tom Brady, J.J.Watt, Adrian Peterson, Joe Thomas, Von Miller, Marshal Yanda and Justin Tucker as others getting every vote.

Donald one of four from the University of Pittsburgh including Larry Fitzgerald, who had three, 100 catch seasons and 61 touchdowns.  Tailback LeSean McCoy, who rushed for over 1,000 yards six times, including a league-leading 1607 yards in 2013.  Corner Darrelle Revis, who had just 15 interceptions, but was often thrown away from during his 11 year career.

Donald, Revis from Aliquippa and Woodland Hills tight end Rob Gronkowski represent the WPIAL.

Maurkice Pouncey and Antonio Brown (837 receptions and 11,207 yards) are the Steelers on the team.  That brings 26 Steelers who are on the All-Decade Teams through the years.   

Jack Lambert and Mike Webster are the only Steelers to be named on multiple All-Decade teams.
