    Cool Where are they now: Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala

    Hands down the best ever football name! LOL. He was a bull when he was here. I remember thinking how great it was having having such a battering ram on the team. It's a shame he couldn't have lasted longer in his time here.

    Chris Fuamatu-Ma’afala
    Running Back
    1998-2002
    Resides in Hawaii



    What are you currently doing?
    Working with youth sports for the U.S. Army on the bases in Hawaii. They have three bases on the Island of Oahu and we run all of the youth sports programs. We work with kids ages 3-17 and try to counsel them about their parents being deployed.

    What is the fondest memory from your playing career?
    It would be being in the locker room, hanging out with the guys and getting ready for the games. That is what I miss the most.

    What was your best game?
    My best moment was a game when we played Cleveland. I was doing special teams. Amos (Zereoue) was doing third down. We had the two-minute drill. Amos got hurt and I had to go in for him on the last drive to go ahead and help us win the game. I guess that would be my best moment.

    What made playing for the Steelers special?
    It’s very family-oriented. The organization from top to bottom respects everybody. When I went to Jacksonville it didn’t feel the same. Everybody says the same when they leave Pittsburgh. This will always be my second home. It was a great experience.

    Teammates you were closest to during your playing days?
    Kimo von Oelhoffen, Levon Kirkland…there were so many friendships with all of those guys.

    Teammate who was the biggest character?
    Earl Holmes. He was off the chain. He is a funny guy. I heard he is doing good coaching in college now. I am happy for him.

    Do you still keep in touch with former teammates?
    I do. I talk to Troy Edwards a lot. It’s fun talking and sharing old stories with the guys.

    Do you still follow the Steelers and if so, how closely?
    I do always. In Hawaii, nobody remembers me playing for the Jaguars. Everything was all about Pittsburgh. I am glad it’s like that. I want to be remembered as a Steeler.

    He brought up some blast from the past names:

    Earl Holmes, the Hitman: He was one of my favorites during his time here until he left for Detroit I think it was. He had a mean streak that fit being a Steeler linebacker perfectly.

    Troy Edwards: Man what a blown pick that was, I remember that year Cowher was hell bent on taking a WR high in the draft that year.
