Jon Kolb, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman for 13 seasons (1969-81) who earned four Super Bowl rings with the team, was the guest speaker March 20 for the Clymer Christian and Missionary Alliance’s Wild Game Dinner at the Penn Run Outreach Center.
Kolb competed in the second and third annual World’s Strongest Man competitions in 1978 and 1979, finishing in the top three both times. Kolb spoke of his career with the Steelers and told of the many off-the-field exploits with his former teammate, quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
He closed out his speaking engagement with a meet and greet and photo session with those in attendance.
This year’s wild game dinner was dedicated to one of the founders of the event, Dave McCoy, who passed away in 2019. McCoy was a driving force behind the game dinner, involved in planning, selecting speakers, processing the donated meat and organizing the volunteers.
The planning members of the Clymer Alliance, located on Franklin Street in Clymer, had previously made the decision to conclude holding the wild game dinner after the 20th year.
