Hide & Seek? Steelers’ Smith-Schuster looking for his bike
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Somebody is playing hide and seek with JuJu Smith-Schuster’s bike.
The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver says someone stole the bike he uses to commute from the team’s facility to his nearby apartment.
The 20-year-old Smith-Schuster is working on getting his driver’s license and regularly bikes to and from work.
Smith-Schuster took to Twitter on Tuesday asking for help and launched the hashtag #TeamFineJuJusBike.
Smith-Schuster, whose three touchdowns this season tied for the most by a player before their 21st birthday, received an assist from teammate Antonio Brown. Brown is offering two tickets to a Steelers home game if the bike is returned.
Smith-Schuster, the NFL’s youngest player, grew up in Long Beach, California. He says there was no need to get a driver’s license while attending college at USC because of the school’s ride-sharing program.
Smith-Schuster has become an instant hit in Pittsburgh for his touchdown celebrations.
The latest came in a victory over Cincinnati last Sunday when he and running back Le’Veon Bell played “hide and seek” after Smith-Schuster hauled in a 31-yard scoring pass from Ben Roethlisberger.
